Richmond woman says teen tried to break into her home


A Richmond woman says she's terrified tonight after she claims a group of teens tried to break into her home.

This happened in the city's south side in the 2600 block of Susten Lane. Theresa Morris says this isn't the first time someone has tried to break in and now, she wants the whole community to be on watch.

Morris says she was home alone at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday when she heard voices right outside her home.

"I heard a lot of noise and lot of laughing, my kids were not home, so let me see who it is."

She peeked out her window and noticed her motion sensory light had turned on and with what little light it provided she was able to see, she was not alone.

She says she saw five to six teenage boys, some dressed in black, with hoodies on.

There wasn't enough light to make any facial recognition but Theresa says could tell they were teens.

Morris believes it was her forceful banging on the window that scared them off.

Newly elected city council member, Michelle Mosby, says she lives in the same community and will work to keep crime out of the 9th district.

"I have been in touch with the police, and our plans are to work closely together, we're going to have some meetings we're going to have neighborhood watches not going to have them but they're going to be effective and active," said Mosby.

Theresa strongly believes these crooks may have been after her son's bike among other things.
