Parents fight off late-night intruder found in 4-year-old’s bedroom, Arizona cops say

A mom checking on her 4-year-old son late at night got a shock when she discovered a strange man in his room, Arizona police reported.

The mom began screaming and the 25-year-old intruder attacked her in the Sunday, April 14, confrontation, Phoenix police said in a news release.

The child’s father rushed in and began fighting with the intruder, police said. The two fought their way to the back yard, where the intruder climbed over a wall and escaped.

Police called by the family searched for the intruder but could not initially find him, officers said.

The mother told police she woke when someone turned on a light inside the home and went to check on her 4-year-old son after noticing his bedroom door was open, KSAZ reported.
