COLUMBIA — Columbia police arrested a 20-year-old man early Sunday morning in connection with two burglaries and sexual misconduct at Gatehouse Apartments on Broadway.

Officers from the Columbia Police Department took Juan Daniel Calvo-Espinosa into custody around 4 a.m. after they were called to a burglary in progress at 2400 W. Broadway, according to a Police Department news release. Police searched the apartment and found Calvo-Espinosa hiding in a bedroom, according to the release.

According to the release, Calvo-Espinosa matched the description of man from an earlier robbery reported in the same apartment complex the same day. At 2:37 a.m., two officers had been dispatched to 2401 W. Broadway in response to a robbery and reported sexual misconduct involving a 16-year-old girl.

The girl was asleep in bed when she awoke to find a man with his arm around her; she screamed, and the man ran from the apartment, according to the release.

According to the release, Calvo-Espinosa made incriminating statements that implicated him in the earlier robbery during an interview with detectives. He was arrested on two counts of first-degree burglary with his bond to be set by a judge and one count of sexual misconduct with his bond set at $500, according to the release.
