"We're just lucky nothing else happened," said David Lee.
Lee's wife was home alone at their Floral Ridge Drive home Tuesday morning at around 10 a.m. when she heard the doorbell ring.
"They came, rang the doorbell," Lee said. "She just ignored it thinking they would go away."
Lee's wife looked out a window and saw a newer model black Buick sedan with a Florida plate backing into the driveway. The vehicle occupants, a male and a female, went to the back deck and attempted to pry open a window. Lee's wife shouted out and the two quickly fled.
"When they realized someone was in the house, they got in the car and took off," Lee said.
Lee's wife was able to obtain the tag number of the vehicle and provided the information to authorities. She described the would-be burglars as being dark-skinned. The female had hair weaves and was larger than the male, Lee said.
Though the window was damaged when the male and female pried it open, nothing was taken and Lee's wife was unharmed.
Lee believes the pair waited until they thought most people were at work before going door to door looking for an unoccupied home. He said going forward, he and his wife will be sure to investigate if anyone persistently knocks on the door or repeatedly rings the doorbell.
"At that point, you've got to let them know someone is home," Lee said. "If they're persistent, they're up to something."
Lee's home was reportedly not the only one targeted on Tuesday. Details on the other incidents will be posted when available. Police are also investigating a Sept. 10 burglary in Hamilton Mill that also occurred during the day. Approximately $30,000 in jewelry was taken during that incident.
