"I heard a loud bang, which sounded like someone was trying to break into the house. Then all of a sudden I hear scrambling and I knew someone was in the house," Costanzo said.

Costanzo immediately locked herself in the bedroom with her three dogs and called 911. Police came right away and Melinda was relieved, but their first question surprised her.
