SACO, Maine — A teenage boy is facing a burglary charge after he broke into a house on Ocean Park Road on Monday, according to officials.

Topaz Papassavas-Temor, 18, of Saco cut through a screen window to gain access to the home, and while he didn’t steal anything, he was still charged with burglary along with criminal mischief, Saco Deputy Chief Jeff Holland said.

The male homeowner and an infant child were home at the time of the incident, Holland said, and witnesses gave police Papassavas-Temor’s description after he fled the scene.

One of the department’s K-9 units was close by, and they were able to track down Papassavas-Temor and place him under arrest, Holland said.

Papassavas-Temor was booked into the York County Jail after he was unable to post $250 bail. He faces up to 10 years behind bars if convicted of the burglary charge.
