A 15-year-old boy who allegedly broke into a Boyle Heights preschool and took off his clothes was arrested Tuesday, Los Angeles police said.

The boy is suspected of twice breaking into the Centro De Alegria preschool, where he ransacked the school looking for valuables, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

Surveillance video showed the suspect taking off his clothes and masturbating in the school lobby, according to the LAPD.

The boy was booked into Eastlake Juvenile Hall on suspicion of burglary. Detectives tracked him down after receiving a tip from a resident who saw a television news report of the crime.
