Teen Uses Butcher Knife to Scare Away Robbery Suspect

A 13-year-old who was home with her younger brother used a butcher knife to scare away a robber.

The Houston Police Department released a composite sketch of the suspect on Thursday because he is still on the loose.

The girl said someone knocked on the front door of her northeast Houston home on the morning of October 6. When no one answered, the man went to the back door and knocked again. He failed to kick the door down, so he went back to the front door and forced it open.

The scared teenager grabbed a butcher knife and used it to protect her and her brother. The man ran away after seeing the weapon.
