Folsom Police: Burglary suspect ditched girlfriend (who was not involved) at crime scene
A man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary and felony assault after initially fleeing the crime scene on foot, Folsom Police said.
Just after 1 AM on February 4, officers responded to a residence on the 4700 block of Esplanade Circle to investigate a report of a possible burglary-in-progress.
At the scene, officers stopped a suspect vehicle and spoke to the sole occupant, an unidentified woman, who said her boyfriend had gotten out of the vehicle and fled on foot prior to officers’ arrival.
She identified her boyfriend as 23-year-old Danyyil Moskovych. Officers soon determined the woman had no knowledge of the alleged crime, eliminating her as a suspect.
Officers then entered the residence where the alleged burglary took place and located a male victim, whom they say had been bound by duct tape and sustained significant injuries to his head and face, requiring hospitalization.
Just before 5 PM that afternoon, on the same date, detectives tracked Moskovych to an address in North Highlands. There they arrested him on suspicion of felony assault, robbery, and torture.
He has since been booked on $1 million bail.
