On Friday, a warrant was issued for Booker’s arrest for a burglary that happened on September 8.

According to court records, Booker and an “unknown, armed accomplice” forcefully entered a home in the 6100 block of Morton Avenue and committed a theft offense.

Police say that this is not the only crime that Booker is connected to.

According to authorities, DNA evidence has linked Booker to an open sexual assault investigation reported in Cleveland in 2018.

Booker is not officially connected to a case where an unknown suspect broke into a home and attempted to sexually assault a 7-year-old girl.

Police are still investigating the sexual assault case and the break-ins, but ask anyone with information to call crime stoppers at 216-252-7463.
