Armed men caught on camera trying to break into NE DC home

Surveillance video shows two men, one armed with a knife, appearing to try to break into a home on East Capitol Street NE on Saturday afternoon.

A 16 year old, who FOX 5 is not naming for his protection, says he was home alone at about 2:00 p.m., the time of the attempted burglary. He heard a noise at the door and immediately called 911.

The teen says police did not arrive until at least 30 minutes later, but by then the burglars had given up on getting inside and left the house.

FOX 5 asked the D.C. Police Department about the response time, but police have not responded.

Police are investigating the crime, and it is not clear if the suspects have been identified by investigators.
