Three Antioch boys at home when burglar enters, call police, man arrested, Monday morning

By Corporal James McMurry #2384, Antioch Police Field Services Bureau

On Monday, June 22, 2015 at 10:25 AM, Antioch Police Officers responded to the 911 call of a male who had entered the residence of a home in the 2100 block of Hamlin Drive, with three juveniles, ages 10, 12 and 13, inside. The parent had briefly left to go to the store but did not lock the front door when she left the home.

The suspect, Terrell Freeman, age 39, entered the closed, but unlocked front door and was standing in the living room. The boys heard the door open and went to see who it was and saw the unknown man standing inside the house.

The family dog entered the living room, saw the unknown man in the house, and the dog charged at the man. Freeman fled out the front door and closed the door behind him. The boys locked the door and called 911 to report what had happened.

Officers responded to the residence and located Freeman standing in the front yard near the front door. Freeman was detained without incident and later arrested. He was later sent to the Martinez Detention Facility on a residential burglary charge. Neither the three boys nor the dog were injured during the incident.

If anyone has information that is related to this case, they can call the Antioch Police Department’s non-emergency line at (925) 778-2441.
