PORT ARTHUR (August 26, 2013)—Port Arthur police are praising a 12-year-old boy for his bravery during a break-in at his home.
The boy was home alone when two burglars broke in last week.
He hid in a closet and called 911, telling a dispatcher that he heard a window being broken.
The boy stayed in the bedroom closet and continued to talk quietly to the dispatcher, who told him he was doing OK and advised him to stay out of sight and on the phone.
Officers arrived in time to arrest the two burglars as they ran from the house.
It wasn’t clear Monday what charges they were facing.
