Teen helps Modesto police nab a burglar


Modesto police are commending a teen for his bravery and for acting as a good witness during an attempted robbery of the teen's home Tuesday afternoon.

In a weird twist, the burglar actually ended up reaching out to police for help himself.

At around 1:45 p.m., the Modesto Police Department said they responded to a call from a teen victim for a burglary in process on Peninsula Drive, north of Pelandale Avenue.

According to police, the teen said a man came to the front door of the home, knocking several times. Because the teen didn't recognize the man, he didn't answer the door. Several minutes later, the sound of someone entering through a bedroom window alarmed the teen and police said he ran from the home to the neighbor's house in order to call police.
