SANTA ANA (CNS) - A 19-year-old man was charged today with breaking into the residence of three female college students in the city of Orange and ejaculating onto a laptop computer belonging to one of residents, which he used to download porn.

Jonathan Jose Ruiz of Orange allegedly broke into the home on the evening of Oct. 4, went through the residents' underwear and then left his semen on the laptop, after downloading pornographic images and viewing them online, said Sgt. Phil McMullin of the Orange Police Department.

Ruiz also allegedly helped himself to some milk and cookies, according to McMullin, who said investigators do not believe he knew the victims.

Police sent the evidence from the computer to a lab, and prosecutors used a new method to identify the suspect more quickly than usual and arrest him on Thursday, McMullin said.

Ruiz is charged with burglary and vandalism, both felonies, and faces a sentence-enhancing allegation of committing a crime for his sexual gratification.
