NATOMAS, CA - A 12-year-old girl found herself in a real life "Home Alone" situation when two armed burglars broke into her house Friday morning.
Karsten Daniels had the day off from school for a long Presidents' Day weekend, but her parents, who work at different schools, had to go to work and leave her alone for the day.
Daniels planned to sleep-in, but she woke up when she heard the two male burglars breaking through the downstairs window.
Police said one burglar climbed through the window and then let his partner in through the sliding glass door.
"I was standing behind the door, texting my dad, 'I think someone broke in. I don't know what to do. I'm scared out of my mind,'" said Karsten, who knew she had to be quiet.
She turned the volume down on her phone and quietly closed her bedroom door.
