TRENTON, MI (WDIV) — An incident in Trenton Wednesday is listed as a burglary and home invasion, but it sounded more like a new sequel to 1990s hit “Home Alone.”
Warning: Corny “Home Alone” movie references scattered throughout this article.
Police said a woman randomly walked into the Trenton home, played with the family’s dog and started cooking. She had no idea there was a 10-year-old boy upstairs.
“He said she sounded drunk,” homeowner John Sueta said. “So he grabbed a BB gun, hid under the bed and called 911.”
The boy didn’t throw heavy paint cans down the stairs or unleash a pet tarantula on the woman, but he did the right thing by calling police.
“Some random person is in my house trying to steal my dog,” he told the 911 operator.
Police said the woman was nearly naked and under the influence of alcohol when she walked into the home. She quickly made friends with Grayson, the family’s dog.
“My brother has a BB gun, should I–?” the boy started to ask the operator.
“No. No. Just stay under the bed,” the operator told him.
Police say things then got even stranger.
“Her nightgown was found a few blocks away,” Sueta told WDIV-TV. “She put on my son’s jersey — his football jersey — and my tennis shoes. Then, I don’t know, she must have went out back with the dog to jump on the trampoline.”
Police then showed up and arrested the woman.
