Intruders break down door of West Seattle home

SEATTLE (AP) - Intruders kicked down the front door of a woman's home in West Seattle Wednesday morning, rummaged through her apartment and stole her purse and car.

Police say a man entered the woman's bedroom, put his hand over her mouth and told her to stop screaming.

When he left, she ran to a neighbor who called police. Three people were seen driving away in the woman's car.
