Police Release 911 Call Made After Edmond Home Invasion
EDMOND, Oklahoma - A woman and her son were held at gunpoint during a home invasion in Edmond. Police released the 911 call the woman made after two guys burst into the family home.
In the call, the victim was very calm as she described what happened Thursday in the Coffee Creek Estates.
"They knocked on my door and I opened it, because that's what I do, and they said something about a lawn service, and I said I wasn't interested. I started to shut the door and one of them pulled out a gun," said Sharleen Bently, the victim.
Bently said two young boys wearing masks disconnected the phone and then started gathering up her family's stuff.
Operator: "How long were they in the house?"
Victim: "They were in there over 15 minutes. They took whatever they could carry. They took the cell phones. They disconnected, they didn't take all the computers. They took some monitors. They took whatever they could fit in three suitcases."
But they didn't get far, thanks to a descriptions from Bently and her son.
The accused home invaders,18-year-old Kylen Whitehorn and a 16-year-old boy, were caught just moments after the crime. But, not before leading officers on a chase, hitting two patrol cars and then crashing out.
Bently ran to a neighbor's house to call 911. She told the operator she just wants to feel safe in her own home.
The name of the second suspects is not being released because he is a juvenile. This crime is just the latest incident in a string of home invasions across the metro.
