    Person, I happen to know someone who lives on that street. From what they told me, this guy broke through the back sliding glass door and was planning on stealing their car to get away. But the OVPD arrived within minutes and he ran away. The family was upstairs calling 911. Don't know if they used cell phones or landline, but I usually keep my cell phone on the nightstand next to me.

    I hope you'll follow up on this story by answering such questions as: 1) What did the occupants of invaded house #1 do (or not do) to drive the assailant from their home? 2) Did he break their door down? 3) Where did they have their cell phones that they were so easily at hand for calling the police? Or do they still have land lines? And are those of us who no longer have land lines putting ourselves in needless danger?
