Framingham teen comes face-to-face with intruder
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (WHDH) -- Police are searching for a suspect after a teenager was terrorized in her home during last week’s storms.
During the late afternoon a man walked through 17-year-old Caitlyn Cintolo’s unlocked garage door and kicked in the door to the home.
“I wasn’t really that scared at first, but then I saw his face and I freaked. Completely freaked,” said Cintolo.
The family dog didn’t bark and Cintolo was upstairs in her bedroom, where she didn’t hear anything until she was face-to-face with the intruder.
“As soon as I saw him I got up and I shut my door,” said Cintolo. “He bolted down the stairs, like I heard him bolt down the stairs.”
The suspect took change, jewelry and some medication, but the family is glad that’s all that happened.
“He could have gotten a lot worse if he had had a weapon,” said Cintolo’s cousin. “He could have hurt [Cintolo]. We’re very grateful that nothing happened. I’m glad that he saw her and just ran.”
Since the intruder took off on foot, the Cintolo’s are hoping neighbors are extra careful. They are worried the suspect may strike again not far away.
