Burglars arrested after 12-year-old in closet calls 911

By Carlos Alcalá

Sacramento police arrested a pair of juvenile burglary suspects Friday, after a 12-year-old girl called 911 and hid in a closet while on the phone with the dispatcher.

The girl called police around 11 a.m., reporting that someone had broken into her home on Candela Circle through a back window.

She then ran upstairs and hid in her bedroom closet.

Responding officers saw two juvenile suspects attempt to flee from the front of the home, armed with knives.

Officers arrested the pair and took them to juvenile hall.
