Posted July 19, 2012
Fayetteville, N.C. — A home invasion in the Birch Creek subdivision near Fayetteville Wednesday prompted authorities to warn nearby residents to be on the alert.
A teenager home alone around 1 p.m. Wednesday said that a man rang the doorbell, knocked on the door and kicked it open when she did not answer, said Debbie Tanna, a spokeswoman for the sheriff's office. The teen hid in a back room and called 911.
The man was last seen wearing a red baseball cap and driving a silver car.
Tanna urged residents in that area to stay alert and be aware of potential danger.
Anyone with information about the break-in asked to call the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office at 910-323-1500.
