  • A 25-year-old San Francisco man was reportedly wearing a 13-year-old boy's clothes when police confronted him about a burglary in the Castro District.

It wasn't hard to identify a 25-year-old burglary suspect in the Castro District last weekend, police said, as he was reportedly dressed head-to-toe in clothing belonging to a 13-year-old boy.

Joshua Rodolfy, 25, of San Francisco, was booked into County Jail on charges of burglary and possession of stolen property in connection with the Saturday break-in in the 300 block of Noe Street, near 16th and Market streets.

At about 3:50 a.m., police said, a 13-year-old and his 17-year-old brother were playing video games when they heard noises, Officer Gordon Shyy said. They initially thought it was their father, Shyy said, and their father thought it was the kids. Eventually they realized a burglar was in their home and called police.

Officers responded swiftly and detained Rodolfy outside the home, Shyy said. The suspect, who's listed as 6-feet-1, 158 pounds, was wearing a T-shirt, baseball cap, jeans and Nike shoes, Shyy said, all of which belonged to the 13-year-old.

Rodolfy was also allegedly in possession of the boy's cellphone.

Shyy said he didn't know how well the stolen clothing fit the suspect.

Rodolfy is no stranger with the law. He was also booked for having an outstanding warrant for trespassing and vandalism in The City, police said.
