Guam – Police have arrested one of the men who allegedly forced his way into a senior woman’s Ordot home earlier this week. The suspect has a history of armed robbery cases against him.

Francis Jerome Taisacan and another suspect forcefully entered and stole numerous items from the victim’s home.

The victim was at home at that time.

Guam Police Department spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao said, “The suspects were seen fleeing in a white sedan in which the victim indicated that she was not harmed during the course of the incident.”

Police were able to identify the vehicle’s owner who in turn provided the identities of the two suspects involved in the home invasion.  

Police tracked Taisacan in the village of Yona.

Criminal history

Records show that Taisacan has a record that dates back to his teens.

In 2011, at the age of 16, he was charged as an adult in three armed robberies at the Mermaid Tavern in Hagatna; the Ebenezer Store in Yona and the Club High 57 in Maite.

Police identified Taicasan as the “stick-up man.”  

In 2013, at the age of 19, he was arrested again. This time, for the assault and robbery of a teacher in the parking lot of M.U. Lujan Elementary School.

For this recent arrest, Taisacan faces charges of home invasion, burglary,  second-degree robbery, conspiracy, theft of property criminal trespass, and guilt established by complicity.

He was booked and confined.
