Daniel Torrio was arrested by the Pinal County Sheriff's Office for the burglary and attack of a San Manuel homeowner.

According to a PCSO media release, deputies responded to the home for a burglary on Sunday.

Deputies who were on scene say the homeowner woke up to find the burglar in his kitchen.

The homeowner said the suspect attacked him with a screwdriver before he was arrested, according to a PCSO media release.

In a media release statement, Sheriff Mark Lamb said:

“We released pictures and surveillance footage of the suspect breaking into the home on social media and we were flooded with tips that help identify and locate the suspect. This is just one of the many examples for how important the community’s role is in protecting our community. We appreciate all their help and we are glad Mr. Torrio will not be able to victimize anyone else.”

According to PCSO, Torrio was taken in on a parole violation and will be charged with burglary and aggravated assault.
