John Carlos Cairo, 19, was charged with two counts of burglary after breaking into a home as a family slept inside, police said.

According to WTVJ, Cairo burglarized the family's Bentley car before entering the home and removing his shoes. Inside the home at the time were a husband, a wife and two small children. The couple woke to see Cairo standing over them in their bedroom.

A police report said Cairo fled the house but left his shoes on the couch. He was arrested shortly after leaving the home.

When taken into a police interview room, police said, Cairo attempted to escape through the roof.

Police are investigating whether Cairo may be responsible for other burglaries. He was also arrested on drug-related charges on Tuesday.

Cairo was being held at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami.
