Would-Be Burglar Kicks In Door
With Resident Just Inside

A Midway woman was at home and standing near her doorway on Thursday afternoon when a stranger in a ball cap reportedly kicked down her door.

The Greene County Sheriff's Department is investigating the incident. Deputies are seeking two males in a black Nissan Altima as possible suspects, according to the report by Sgt. David Beverly.

The victim, who lives in the 100 block of Croff Kirk Road, said she was on the phone with her daughter around 1:20 p.m. Thursday, when she heard knocking on her front door.

By the time she made it into her front living room, she heard the individual walking off her front porch, so she sat down on the couch and did not go to the door.

Within seconds, the knocking returned and was "very hard," according to the report.

She had walked within a couple feet of the door when the person knocking suddenly kicked the door twice, forcing it open in front of her, according to the report.

The victim described the individual as appearing to be between the ages of 18 and 21, wearing a ball cap, white shirt and acid-washed blue jeans. He appeared to be a tall and slim, white male.

After seeing that someone was at home, the man ran, dropping a pair of red-handled wire cutters while running to a vehicle, according to the report.

The resident told deputies she saw another white male in a ball cap sitting in the driver's seat. The two sped off at a high rate of speed going down McDonald Road, Beverly said in the report.

The Sheriff's Department received a call concerning a black 2000 Nissan traveling past Green Road that nearly ran another vehicle off the road.

Deputies who responded to the Croff Kirk Road residence located the wire-cutters, a muddy footprint on the busted front door and pieces of the busted door lying several feet away throughout the room.

Damage was estimated at $100.
