The Maricopa County Attorney's Office confirmed to CBS 5 News that a 16-year-old rape suspect will be charged as an adult.
Danny Jackson is facing 11 counts including five counts of sexual assault, two counts of attempted sexual assault, two counts of kidnapping and two counts of burglary.
The boy is no stranger to police. He has a criminal past which police would only say includes crimes related to the ones he is currently being held for.
Court documents from February of 2010 show that Jackson was suspected of assaulting a middle school teacher when he was 13. The case was dismissed, according to the documents.
In February of 2011 Jackson was suspected of an assault with intent to injure, but the Maricopa County Attorney's Office did not file charges.
He was suspected of taking another's ID in June of 2012, a case that went through a diversion program to avoid charges.
In a press conference late Friday night, Scottsdale police said they arrested the 16-year-old boy for two rapes committed in October.
"We are positive this is the right guy," said Sgt. Mark Clark with the Scottsdale Police Department.
Clark told reporters DNA testing is ongoing, but the police lab positively connected the suspect to forensic evidence from both attacks last month.
"Our lab work is still going on so we are limited on exactly what we can say, but we can say that our lab has assured us that this is the right person and that he has been linked to the crime forensically," said Clark.
Police say the teenager's name came in through a tip from the community, and because they had prior contact with him, he was already in their system.
"As soon as the evidence was developed that identified a specific suspect, we were able to locate him and get him arrested quickly for community safety," said Clark.
Jackson was arrested without incident shortly after 5 p.m. Friday evening near his apartment in the 10000 block of Scottsdale Boulevard. He lives near both of the apartment complexes where police say the two rapes occurred Oct. 18 and Oct. 24.
Scottsdale police served a search warrant at the suspect's home and collected more evidence, which is currently being tested.
Police say there are some similarities between the composite sketch drawn with the help of the first rape victim and the teenager in custody's appearance.
Police are confident the 16-year-old arrested is the one and only suspect.
