Omaha Police received a 911 call around 10:45 Thursday morning. A woman reported loud knocking on her front door near 15th and Z Street and saw two men standing there.
Police say due to the fact the woman didn't recognize the men and because their behavior seemed suspicious, she didn't answer the door.
After the knocking stopped, the woman saw both men at her back door, wearing gloves as they approached. In fear of their lives, Police say the mother and children hid in a basement closet as the thieves started stealing property from the house.
The woman called 911 and officers arrived moments later and arrested the two men, who had some of the stolen property with them.
