DENVER — A man took a photograph of himself with the victim’s cell phone after breaking into her Denver home.

At approximately 9:20 p.m. on Jan. 29, the male suspect entered a residence on the 3400 block of W. Amherst Ave while the victim was putting her children to sleep, said police.

Police added that they are unsure how the man got into the home. But they were able to get a photograph of him because he used the victim’s cell phone to take a selfie.

The family living in the residence told police they did not know the suspect. However, police learned that he had been seen walking in the neighborhood in the past.

Anyone one recognizes the suspect is asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward up to $2,000.
