Police say he opened and climbed through an unlocked window at one home and had a face to face encounter with a 23-year-old woman inside.   She says she grabbed his arm and scared him off.

Sydney McFarland told CBS 11 she was too startled to be scared when she confronted him.   “My parents said ‘I can’t believe that you grabbed him, I would have screamed,’ but I just said ‘what are you doing in my house?’ and then he took off.”

In two other breakins, the burglar stole property.   What has police and victims stunned is the intruder appears to be a young teenager.

    This kid better be careful. Lots of folks keep weapons just for this purpose.

    It’s “break in” if it’s used as a verb. It’s “break-in” if used as a noun.

    It’s never “breakin”, unless you meant the 1984 film, “Breakin'” or its sequel, “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo”.

    Please use a dictionary, AP Style Manual, and a thesaurus when writing copy for your stories.

        This twit is a journalist. He should be held to higher standards than us Joe Six Packs. I can see why the guy corrected him. By the way, if you’re commenting on this, just to say “get a life” shouldn’t YOU get a life as well? Just sayin’.
