Boy hides under sheets, calls for help in burglary [911 tape]
"I just heard the window break," the boy tells the dispatcher, according to a copy of the 911 tape. "I think someone's in the house."
Calmly, the boy provides details to the dispatcher. She asks how old he is.
"I'm only 15," he says.
As the burglar gets closer, the boy whispers, "He's coming."
"Were on our way," the dispatcher says. The dispatcher then advises the boy to hide under some blankets.
At one point, the 42-year-old intruder was rummaging through the room where the youth was hiding, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Wednesday night.
The Valinda resident was being held Wednesday night in lieu of $50,000 bail.
