A 12-year-old girl left alone in a house in Palmdale with her 3-year-old sister sought the assistance of neighbors as their house was being burglarized, according to reports from the scene.
Neither of the girls was hurt, but the house in the 4200 block of Sorrell Avenue was ransacked, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Frank Quichocho. The burglary occurred around 1:20 a.m., Wednesday, he said.
The 12-year-old girl ran to the house of a friend three blocks away to get help, a news videographer reported from the scene.
