A Center Grove area woman reported a man attempted to break into her home while she was there.
When the man attempted to use his shoulder to ram his way through the front door, the woman ran to a bedroom and called 911. The man ran away without getting into the house, according to a report from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office.
The attempted break-in happened just after 10:30 a.m. Tuesday in the 2800 block of Saddle Club Road. The man knocked first on the front door and then on an outside kitchen door, but the woman did not answer. Then the man returned to the front door and tried to get into the home by hitting the door with his shoulder, the report said.
