A teen-age girl who was home from school on Friday locked herself in her bathroom after two men attempted to break into her home while her father was at work.
The girl, who lives on the 100 block of North Walnut, told police that at about 10:50 a.m., she heard someone ringing the front doorbell and knocking on the door excessively. She looked out the front window and saw a black man in a gray hoodie and a silver SUV parked in front of the house on the street. The girl called her father and locked herself in the bathroom.
About five minutes later, she came out of the bathroom and saw the SUV backed into her driveway all the way to the end by the garage. She saw another black man wearing a "fire-engine red" colored hoodie, Hollister brand, walking toward the back door. The girl yelled and went back into the bathroom until officers arrived. Her father arrived home shortly afterward and told police nothing appeared to be missing.
In another incident, reported on Sunday, a resident of the 400 block of North Emroy told police that he left for work at about 8 a.m. and returned at 7:30 p.m. to find damage to the rear door of his home. The house was checked and nothing appeared to be missing. The garage to his home had been burglarized about a week prior, police said. No suspect description is available.
