A spokesperson for the Santa Clara County Jail said defendant Ryan Kamfolt has been booked and processed into their custody. Kamfolt was arrested by members of the San Jose Police Department after he was found attempting to break in to a local home.
Authorities said the female resident placed a call to 9-1-1 after she discovered an unknown male had unlawfully entered her apartment. She awoke to find him standing over her bed. The woman immediately screamed for help. It was at that time that Kamfolt fled the scene on foot.
Police cars arrived to the area quickly. Officers said Kamfolt was found standing on the street, trying to pretend he was a bystander to the incident. The SJPD said they were able to identify the suspect based on the description provided to them by the victim. He was arrested on the spot.
During the time of his arrest it was learned that Kamfolt had been outfitted with an electronic ankle monitoring device. He admitted that he was currently on parole for burglary and that he was also a registered sex offender. A pair of women’s underwear was found stuffed inside one of his pockets.
Jail officials describe him as being a very dangerous individual and have said it is good that he is no longer on the streets. He had reportedly registered as being a transient earlier this year and did not have a listed permanent residence. The defendant is currently being detained at the Santa Clara County Jail and has been charged on suspicion of residential burglary. He has a no-bail hold due to him having violated the terms and conditions of his parole.
Kamfoldt is due to appear in court later this week.
