NORTHVILLE, Mich. (WJBK) - A frantic call to 911 tells the story of a woman hiding in her Northville home as two men attempt to break in.
"I'm so scared," the woman said on the call. "I'm scared."
The scary moments taking place late Tuesday morning on Beck Road near 7 Mile in Northville. Two men come to a woman's home, and try to get inside.
"It looks like he might have a gun," she said.
The woman is smart -- she goes into a closet and calls 911.
"One of them, he was looking into the house, and then he went back to his car, then he came back out, looked in the house for a while, and then he got another guy with cornrows came out of the back seat, and one had a gun and it appeared. Oh my God, I'm so scared," the woman said on the call.
For whatever reason, the two men decide not to go inside and police responding to the area missed the bad guys by only minutes.
Now while police were responding to the call on Beck Road, they received another of a home invasion a short distance away on Autumn Ridge Drive. The owner did not want to speak on camera or have her home shown, but tells me the thieves got away with an iPad, laptops, jewelry -- things you can sell easily on the streets.
"Based on the proximity and the time of the day and the set of circumstances, we clearly are linking the two events together," said Chief Todd Mutchler of Northville Township police.
We also spoke with the woman who lives on Beck Road. She did not want to show her face, but hopes that anyone who knows anything about to the two men to speak up, saying home break-ins have been a problem in the neighborhood for the past few years.
"They need to speak up," she said. "We need to get to the bottom of this. It's been going on way too long."
The woman also said she has a few guns in her house, and will likely defend herself if the bad guys ever come back.
Police only have a vague description of the two men last seen driving a newer, light color four-door sedan.
