The stuff of nightmares


A local 12 year old girl was home alone when a man knocked on her door. KGW says:
When Mackenzie heard the man try to open the door, she called 9-1-1 from a corded telephone in her bedroom, she said Tuesday morning.

On the 9-1-1 tape, she could be heard saying "There's someone at my door, and he keeps knocking on it, and he tried to open it."

It seem the man goes away, but on the tape, a frightened Mackenzie heard a noise again at the door and called out in a frightened voice "who's here!"

The dispatcher told her to stay on the line, but to hide in the bedroom closet. The phone cord wouldn't reach. She was then told to hide under the bed, but there wasn't enough space for her.

As a last resort, the dispatcher suggested she hide under a blanket, but not hang up the phone. So Mackenzie threw a yellow blanket over her and lay silent, even as one of the suspects entered the room.
Read how everything turned out.
