Just want to report another attempted robbery in the neighborhood. Someone knocked on my door around 2 this (Sunday)afternoon and when I didn’t answer they broke into the downstairs sliding glass door. Found doors opened and they opened my desk cabinet, but doesn’t look like anything was taken. I think when they heard me upstairs they left. I was in the restroom at the time so I didn’t hear anything after the knock. I was home alone with my 11 week old baby. Called the police and they checked everything out and dusted for fingerprints. I am on the corner of 30th Avenue W and Government Way. Very unnerving and upsetting to have this happen.
And this one:
I’m not sure if you’ve already been emailed about this from the actual residents of the home (I told them to send you one to help get the word out), but at around 9:00am on Thursday 3/28, a home on 38th Ave across from the blue water tower was broken into while one of the residents was still home. Apparently two males approached the front door and rang the door bell several times to no answer and proceeded to go around to the back of the house and kick in the back door. Once both men were inside, one of them opened a bedroom door to find one of the residents was indeed in the house, which immediately scared them off. As far as I know, only a laptop was stolen, but we are so very thankful that no one was hurt as the situation could have been much much worse. None of the surrounding neighbors were home at the time, but someone on the next block due north reported seeing two men run across their yard around that time. Some news reports say there is no detailed descriptions of the burglars, others say that it was two African American men in their 20s. If anyone saw anything, your help will be greatly appreciated by calling 911!
New report tonight, unknown if police are involved, two “14-year-old boys” were ringing the doorbell several times of a home unoccupied or at least no one home. Neighbors across the street witnessed and chased them away. On Bertona near the water tower. If you think about the nature of breaking giant windows in stores and then stealing virtually nothing, it has the work of kids written all over it.
