The boy told police he was home alone and reported someone attempting to break into the home while a second person was knocking on the front door. The boy then dialed 911 as he observed a man entering the home. The victim said he demanded that the suspect to leave.
The suspect, later identified as Northcraft, immediately left before responding officers gave chase and caught him a short time later. Officers then located Bowman and detained her at the scene of the burglary.
Both suspects were charged with various degrees of burglary.
