Texas Girl, 12, Defends Herself Against Burglar

Updated: Wednesday, August 6 2014, 11:22 AM CDT
HOUSTON (KHOU)-- A 12-year-old girl was home alone this week, when a burglar broke into the home.

But, Amrit Jandu says she knew exactly what to do next. She grabbed a knife and a phone and called 911 and her dad.

The 7th grader says she usually keeps a kitchen knife with her when she is home alone, because in 2011 the family home was burglarized.

No one was home during that incident, but Amrit says that triggered new precautions.

"She’s very brave and she’s very sweet.  She’s so brave I’m proud of her," Amrit's mother said.

The suspect filled two bags, but only carried off the smaller one. Harris County Sheriff's deputies and a K-9 Unit caught the suspect a few doors down and recovered the family's stolen jewelry.

Amrit has quite a story to tell now, about what she did over summer vacation. Texas Girl, 12, Defends Herself Against Burglar
