Shaken after attempted break-in
Some unwanted drama here last night which I thought would be worth publicising in your newspaper.
Watching TV around 7:15pm and there was an almighty crash.
Thinking a picture had fallen off the wall, I ended up in the bathroom and the entire sliding window had fallen in, with glass everywhere.
We cleaned up most of it and rang a glazier to come (cost covered by Body Corporate, thank goodness), but all the time wondering how on earth it could've happened.
This morning we found the screen in the front yard with the wire almost all cut out.
Obviously someone tried to break in and, thankfully, when they tried the window it fell in. They must've got a fright.
Two big footprints outside the front fence this morning.
Rang the police and reported it and they said they'd send someone in the first available car which could be any time.
A forensic officer came out quite soon after I contacted the police.
She told us to leave all outside lights on and windows locked in the future.
So we're locking all our windows from now on and leaving on all outside lights.
So thankful that the window fell in and smashed - otherwise we'd have been in possible danger.
Always felt so safe here but my nerves are a bit shattered to say the least.
