911 Call Thwarts Home Invasion

Suspects demand money then flee Deerfield home when they learn residents dialed 911.

No one was harmed when three men invaded a home in the 700 block of Castlewood Lane Tuesday and fled when they learned one of the residents dialed 911, according to a news release from the Deerfield Police Department.

The offenders entered the door through an open overhead garage door and an unlocked entry door into the house. Once in, they demanded money but quickly left the house when they learned 911 was called, according to the release. The release did not indicate if a weapon was used.
