JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A man who police said is sought in connection with an Arlington home burglary has returned twice to the 92-year-old woman's house, according to her family.

On Aug. 23, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office released a surveillance image, saying it was trying to identify the man pictured following a burglary and battery that occurred in the Arlington area. Investigators said the man entered a woman's home while she slept, threatened her, hit her and took valuable items.

The woman's family told News4Jax it happened early in the morning on June 5 at the 92-year-old's home in the University Park neighborhood of Arlington and that, since then, the man has trespassed and destroyed property twice -- on Aug. 19 and on Sunday. During the last two incidents, the home was not broken into like it was in June, said the woman's son, whom News4Jax has chosen not to name out of concern for the family's safety.

"They estimated he was in the house for four hours or more late at night, walking around, woke her up. She screamed. He slapped her. He told her to shut up. She did. Had her get back in bed and stay there while he searched the house," the woman's son said. "He kept a bright light in her face. She canít hear. She kept saying, 'I canít hear you. I canít hear you.' So he actually let her get up and put her hearing aids in, so he could tell her he wants money. She said, 'Well, I donít have money. We donít keep money in the house.' So he had her get back in bed and said, 'Stay there or Iíll come back and hurt you.'"

The son said she stayed in her bed until sunrise and then called him, so he called police.

"I have replaced the doors. They're all steel doors now," the son said. "There's a security system."

He said that includes a panic alarm that notifies police immediately and security cameras that captured images when the man came back early in the morning on Aug. 19 and on Sunday morning.

"Took the bulbs out of the spotlight we have out back, the motion sensor," the woman's son said.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has arrested a sex offender accused of attacking a 93-year-old woman in her Arlington home.

Joseph Lee Jackson, 59, faces several charges including home invasion robbery, criminal mischief and resisting an officer. Detectives say they received a tip from a citizen which lead to Jackson's arrest.

According to the Florida sex offender registry, Jackson served time in prison for sexual battery on a child in 2001.

Investigators say Jackson is the man seen in surveillance images and video released Thursday.

They said back in June, Jackson crept into a woman's home while she slept, threatened and hit her and then made off with some of her belongings.
