A Bridgeport woman is sharing her story and security video in hopes of helping police arrest a pair of home intruders.
Footage from a home security camera in the 700 block of Platt Street shows two men just before 4 a.m. Saturday. The pair look around and then run off.
A Bridgeport woman, who asked to be identified as Rebecca, says they're responsible for recent break-ins at her brother's house.
Rebecca says he doesn't live there but has been fixing it up.
"It was exactly Aug. 23 when the first break-in occurred and they stole all of his tools and then a bunch of stuff," said Rebecca.
She says a police report was filed, then two weeks later it happened again. The point of entry was those same back doors that had just been fixed.
"This time they didn't find anything, they just did damage to the house," Rebecca said.
Her brother filed a police report.
Rebecca said her brother began staying the night to keep an eye out. Things were quiet until last weekend when she and her parents took a shift looking out.
"We just heard a loud sound -- a loud boom and it sounded like they either hit the house with their car or there was gunshots," she said. "And we just start screaming out thinking they're inside the house and we're about to die."
Rebecca says the suspects took off when they realized people were home, but a neighbor's camera got them on video.
She said the car they got into was a light beige Suburban.
Rebecca says the men used a large rock to partially break the back glass door.
Police are investigating. Rebecca hopes by putting this video out there, someone will recognize these men and come forward.
