Teen Girl Saves Her Sister During A Home Burglary

Posted: Updated:

A thirteen year old girl takes control by calling 911 after hearing burglars enter her home. But first, she made sure her eight year old sister was secure in their closet.

This is the distressed phone call between Kylee and the Weber County's Police Office.

Kylee: they were banging on the door

Dispatcher: which door?

Kylee: at my front door

When they couldn't kick in the front door, two intruders broke into this west Weber home through a side door.

Kylee:(whisper) they're now in the house

Dispatcher: ok where are they at, upstairs?

Kylee:(whisper) yeah

Dispatcher: how many does it sound like, can you tell?

Kylee: two

Dispatcher: can you hear 'em talking?

Kylee: yeah

"They went and trashed our bedroom, my wife and my bedroom," recalls Kylee's father, Russell Newell.

Police say Robert Paul, 50 and Amy Hulse, 31, stole items as they ransacked the house. Meanwhile, Kylee and her sister hid in their bedroom closet and kept quiet when one of the intruders entered the room.

"He took a couple steps in and was literally three feet away from where my daughters were," continues Newell.

"They did an awesome job and kept their wits about 'em. They didn't scream or freak out," said Weber County Sheriff's Deputy Weston Vought.

Kylee remembers, "I knew my sister is in the closet and if he catches me he's gonna catch her too so I had to think of her, not just myself and that's probably what made my keep my cool."

Kylee followed the dispatcher's commands.

Dispatch says:   "just talk to me when you can, we've got 'em on the way"

Vought recalls, "as I pulled up to the scene I could see one of the suspects flee the house."

Deputy Vought pulled the suspects over and arrested them on burglary, theft and drug charges.

"Definitely it'll take a while for me to get over what happened, says Kylee."

But 24 hours after sheer terror the Newell daughters are enjoying being kids again.

"I'm so proud of my oldest and even my youngest for what they did," declares Newell.
