(KPRC) A frightened 12-year-old grabbed a knife and ran into a bathroom when an intruder broke into her family's home in Cypress, Texas Monday afternoon.
According to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, the girl was home alone around 12:45 p.m. when she heard the door bell ring. She did not answer it.
About 20 minutes later, the girl heard a breaking noise and saw a man entering the house.
"I heard slamming on the door and that's about it," said Amrit Jandu. "I looked outside the window and I saw him."
