Thieves got some unexpected help as they were robbing a Glendale home when a 17-year-old resident walked in on the burglary.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - According to the teen, the burglars seized him and put a shirt over his head so he could not see. They then forced him to tell the location of all the valuables in the house.
After taking several undisclosed valuables, they left the residence admonishing the teen not to call police.
Naturally, the teen victim called police right away and officers set up a perimeter in the neighborhood, but did not find the suspects.
The teenager was unhurt.
The most alarming fact about the crime is that it appears to be the latest in a rash of burglaries in the area that are occurring in broad daylight.
