Spring Valley Woman Fends Off Burglars With Knife

Posted by wlpo on March 9, 2010

A fear shared by many…being woken up by burglars in your home.

A woman in Spring Valley called police Saturday morning saying three boys forced open the backdoor of her home.  She told police she woke up and scared the alleged burglars off with a kitchen knife.  As she was on the phone with police, Herbert Alonzo and two younger boys from Spring Valley allegedly came back before running away and getting caught about a block away.

Alonzo and the 14 year old suspect were arrested for residential burglary and burglary to a motor vehicle.  The 16 year old suspect was picked up for residential burglary, burglary to a motor vehicle, criminal trespass and criminal damage to a vehicle.  All three were taken to the county jail.

Investigators think the three also broke into other cars last week.
