"They were ringing on the door, banging on the door, my dog was barking, and then I just ran to the bathroom cause I got so scared," said the teen.
Pieces of shattered glass are still on their kitchen floor where the burglars kicked in the back door.
While this was going on downstairs, the child was upstairs texting her mom Her mom said she sent a text that stated, "OMG someone is in the house."
"I immediately called her back, she picked up she was whispering," said her mom.
