Where in Blendon Twp did this happen? That might be a helpful bit of info. Just remember folks, we're looking for a strange man in a newsboy cap somewhere in Blendon Twp. Be alert.

BlendonTonship is too busy out hiding and ticketing cars going 3 miles over the limit, and they have to go to waffle house for their half hour break every hour

I am glad that this teen wasn't seriously hurt. Pretty sad when you can't feel safe inside your own home.

I'm shocked, I tell you! Shame on that child for trying to fight back! What was she thinking? Doesn't she know that THEY say you should ALWAYS give a bad guy what they want, and NEVER fight back?

Honestly!

BTW, this is what a newsboy cap looks like:

I want to tell you that the teen this happened to is my grandaughter. I do think that she did the right thing and made the right decision to not allow this intruder to enter the house. I know that it is easy for some of you to judge her actions, but think about what you would have done if put in the same situation. None of us should be so sure that we are safe, even in our own homes. Thanks 10 TV for reporting this story and I only hope that some of you reading this will give a little more thought to what is happening, not only in our own neighborhoods, but everywhere in our country. Lets get angry enough to want these criminals punished for invading us and our families as though it was an O.K thing to do!

This could have been prevented by a security door barce such as the OnGARD. The brace stops the door from being kicked in

stay safe

i think its great she scared the punk away...she had seconds to think and she did it perfectly.

but on other the other hand...a deadbolt's not going to stop someone from kicking in a door...it actually weakens the strength of the door frame because there's an extra hole in it.

a door brace is your best bet...the only thing is it only works when someone is home to put it up.
