I work the 3rd shift at a Rehab and Nursing center. Last night I was running late so I was in a hurry out the door. My wife and 9 mth old daughter were both asleep when I left. Apparently my wife awoke shortly after I had left. Usually I say goodbye but being I was already late and they were sleeping I didn't, so she unlocked the front door and stuck her head out to see if my rig was still in the driveway. She returned inside and the baby woke up, so as she was sitting on the couch trying to get baby back to sleep she decided to call me to see if I had made it to work yet. As I was talking to her she suddenly was screaming that someone was coming through the front door. They had apparently been anticipating that everyone be aslep because upon hearing my wife scream they turnd tail and ran back out the door. I quickly flipped a not so legal u-turn and raced towards home. I told her to take the 9mm out of the nightstand, to go into the master bathroom, lock the door, and call 911. I beat the cops home and made a quick trip around the house with the maglite I keep in the exploder. I didn't see anyone so I entered the house and trident to calm her and the baby down. He police arrived and we filed a report. This isn't the first time someone has trident to break in before, last time the BG force their way in but the backdoor was locked. Again I was at work and just my wife and baby home, she was making a bottle in the kitchen when someone began wrenching on the backdoor trying to force it open. My wife turnd on the porch light and they took off. What concerns me is that this may or maynot be the same individual that knows I work at night and frequently must leave my wife and child home alone. What could I do to prevent this fom happening again? What should I have done?
