Around 9:10 Monday morning, three offenders walked through the back gate of a home in the 3300 block of West Warner, according to police and the camera footage. The men climbed the stairs to a back door and began trying to force their way inside.

But the 25-year-old victim held the door shut, denying the men entry.
