The dramatic call made by a terrified 11-year-old boy helped catch the burglars who were breaking into his home.

The boy was home alone when his mother went out for a jog. He said he first knew something was wrong when he heard the loud crash of glass breaking. So, he hid in a closet and dialed 911.

"I was just scared. I was shocked. All that went through my mind was just, 'Please don't see me. Please let the police catch him,'" said the boy.

After several heart-pounding minutes, police arrived. One suspect was caught on the scene, and the two others were caught hours later.
