The incident happened about 10 a.m. Thursday at a home on Laurel Oak Drive.
Police said two suspects knocked at the front door. The woman who lives in the home looked out and didn't recognize the men. So, she turned on her burglar alarm, called 911 and rushed to hide in her bedroom closet.
That's when the men forced their way through the front door, which set off the alarm and they fled the scene.
Now, people who live in the neighborhood off Rim Road are concerned for their safety.
"I'm very concerned, very concerned. I called several neighbors to inform them what was going on," said Monica Holladay. "It's scary. I mean. This is broad daylight. This is in the morning and didn't even realize the girl was still home. So, she's inside the house as they're trying to break in the front door."
Police said the woman who was inside the house is OK and the suspects fled before they could steal anything. They said the two men got away in silver Nissan Altima.
Anyone with information about the home invasion is asked to contact the police.
