PHOENIX – A suspect accused of luring a 7-year-old boy away from a Chandler school bus stop and molesting him was arrested Thursday after DNA evidence linked the man to the crime, authorities said.

The victim’s parents reported the incident around 8 a.m. on July 29. They said the boy is on the autism spectrum.

The boy had been waiting for his bus at an apartment complex near McQueen and Warner roads when he was approached by a man in a golf cart, according to court records related to the arrest of Jesus Jorge Delcampo.

The man allegedly led the boy behind a building and molested him, according to the probable cause statement arrest.

During the investigation, DNA samples were obtained from male employees at the apartment complex.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety lab reported preliminary test results Wednesday that identified Delcampo as the suspect, police said.

Chandler police arrested Delcampo in Peoria the next day.

Delcampo was booked on one count each of child molestation and kidnapping. Both charges are class 2 felonies.
