The Buffalo News - - LOCAL NEWS - – Mike Kurilovitch

A 9-year-old girl who was left home alone hid in a closet and called 911 when a wouldbe bur­glar shat­tered glass in the rear door of her Ni­a­gara Falls home.

Ni­a­gara Falls Po­lice said the in­ci­dent oc­curred shortly af­ter 3 p.m. Fri­day in the 2400 block of Lin­wood Av­enue. The girl’s mother told po­lice that she had gone shop­ping briefly, leav­ing her daugh­ter unat­tended. The girl told of­fi­cers that she heard some­one knock at the front door, but she did not an­swer. She then heard some­one at the back door.

The girl said she looked out and saw a black male with a hood pulled over his head, then heard glass shat­ter, prompt­ing her to hide and call po­lice. Of­fi­cers ar­rived quickly, but the sus­pect was gone, ac­cord­ing to re­ports.
