Resident hides from home intruders
Capt. Matt Scales of the McMinnville police gave this account:
Dennis Ng, 19, was home alone when he ignored knocks on a door and window. When he discovered three Latino teens had broken in, he took refuge in a bedroom closet.
“He heard them going through the house and rummaging around,” Scales said. “One of the suspects even opened the closet door, but for whatever reason, didn’t see him.”
Ng said the one who opened the door was wearing latex gloves.
When a group of friends and family drove up, the teens fled on foot. The only thing they took was a set of computer speakers, which were located outside.
A window was broken to gain entry.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call McMinnville police at 503-434-7307.
