Man Arrested for Entering a Fontana Home Naked and Masturbating in Teen’s Room

FONTANA – A Fontana man was arrested after sneaking into the window of a 13-year-old girl naked and masturbating over her as she slept.

On Thursday, August 30, 2018, at around 2:42 p.m. the girl slept in her bedroom in the 14100 block of Stanislaus Court when the suspect entered her window. The victim woke up to find the naked suspect masturbating over her. She screamed and the suspect ran out of the bedroom, and down the stairs to leave the home. Officers quickly responded but the suspect had already fled the scene. The Fontana home was equipped with surveillance in the inside of the home, which captured the naked suspect inside the home. “The suspect looked directly into the camera and placed his finger over his lips as if signaling to be quiet,” said Fontana Police officials. An around the clock search for the suspect was done and Fontana detectives took over the investigation.

The suspect was identified as Jonathan Emmanuel Ward, 21, of Fontana. Ward was arrested at his home in the 7000 block of Nebraska Street. “While interviewing the suspect, Detectives were able to identify additional potential victims, and we believe that there may be additional victims who have not reported the incident,” police officials said. Authorities have reason to believe that Ward focused on a dance studio located in the Inland Empire. Police say that Ward became infatuated with some of the young girls and targeted these girls using their social media accounts. “Ward was able to identify where victims lived, as a result of photographs posted on social media,” police officials added.
“Ward would often enter the rear yards of the victim’s residence and on occasion, enter their homes when he would find an unlocked door.”

Ward was booked at the West Valley Detention Center for Burglary and Indecent Exposure, where a $1,000,000 bail enhancement was issued, due to a similar arrest that occurred in 2017 in the City of Fontana. Ward pleaded not guilty in court on Wednesday, September 5, 2018.
