(ABC 6 News) - A Rochester teen was taken into custody early Tuesday morning after officers say he burglarized a home.

The Rochester Police Department received a call about a burglary in progress at a home on the 2600 block of 11th Ave. NW around 3 a.m., September 12.


The victims, a couple in their 60’s, said they awoke to a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt, holding a flashlight and going through their jewelry.  According to Captain John Sherwin, the male victim got into a brief struggle with the suspect before the suspect took off through the front door.  Police believe the suspect got into the home by removing a screen from a kitchen window or through an unlocked service door on the garage.

As an officer was arriving at the home, Captain Sherwin said the officer recognized a vehicle that was leaving the area.  The officer ran the license plate number which was registered to a man, officers called a “prolific burglar”. 

As that officer met with the victims, another officer located the suspect vehicle about ten minutes later at the intersection of Chateau Road and Villa Road NW.  Two people were inside the vehicle, according to Captain Sherwin, and one wasn’t wearing a shirt.  Captain Sherwin said an officer noticed a hooded sweatshirt stuffed behind that person’s seat.  The officer also found a case with a watch inside that had the male victim’s name engraved on it.

The suspect, 18-year-old Dylan Sutter of Rochester, is facing a first-degree burglary charge.  Captain Sherwin said Sutter could also face a robbery charge.  No word on how the other occupant in the suspect vehicle was involved or if he will face charges.  The male victim did suffer some minor injuries, said Captain Sherwin.
