RIVERVIEW, FL - A 15-year-old boy is facing a variety of charges after he broke into a Riverview apartment Friday night and grabbed a five-year-old child.

Bobby McQuay II was arrested on burglary, attempted kidnapping and violation of probation charges. The incident occurred just after 10 p.m. in the 9400 block of Windermere Lake Dr.

According to a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office report Franyeli Martinez-Rodriguez heard a noise emitting from the back bedroom of her apartment. When she went to investigate she found the suspect, who had broken out a window with a tennis show, standing in the room holding the little boy.

Following a short struggle Martinez-Rodriguez was able to free the child from McQuay’s grasp and pushed him back out of the window he came in. The suspect fled and the victim called 9-1-1.

Deputies were dispatched to the scene and HCSO’s aviation unit searched the area for the suspect with negative results. A short time later McQuay, who investigators say lives in the apartment just above the victim, returned to the scene.

Because he fit the description given by Martinez-Rodriguez he was questioned by deputies. McQuay was taken into custody. At the time of this arrest the juvenile was already on felony probation for a previous crime.

Because of the terms of his probation McQuay was supposed to be observing an 8 p.m. curfew.

The suspect told investigators he moved into the apartment complex last week.
