Mexican illegal alien Omero Rojas-Penalosa is accused of being a "hot prowler," meaning that he likes to break into houses when he knows there is someone home, ideally a woman in bed for him to sexually assault. The man was already in jail for burglary and "gross lewdness" in his resident town of Reno when he was arrested for the additional charge. Police report that at least four men have broken into the homes of about a dozen sleeping women since March. An unemployed drywaller, Rojas-Penalosa does not speak English and lives with his mother, Aida Penalosa. She said the accusation is false and he could not be the hot prowler because "he is always at home."
