The girl had gone missing five days earlier.
The 17-year-old, who lives just around the corner from the victim's home, is scheduled to make his first appearance in Kitsap County Juvenile Court on Monday afternoon, according to the station.
KIRO reports neighbors at the Steele Creek Mobile Home Park watched as the teen was taken into custody Saturday afternoon. Authorities have also removed three vehicles from the home where neighbors say the suspect lived.
"He seemed to be a fairly nice kid," Karen Gullickson told the station. "He always was pleasant. Other than that, I don't know anything about [him]."
Jenise's father, James Wright, reportedly told members of his church on Sunday that he can forgive the teenager for his alleged crimes, according to KIRO.
The station reports a memorial for Jenise will be held on Aug. 16.
