Kitchener Man Arrested After Allegedly Entering 3 Langhorne Homes With Unlocked Front Doors – CBS Kitchener

LANGHORNE, PA (CBS) – Police received a warning after a man was arrested for allegedly breaking into several homes. The man is accused of entering three houses in Langhorne, one with a teenage girl home alone.

Middletown Township Police describe this as a crime of opportunity.

It is said that a man walked into three houses on a busy street last night, all of which had one thing in common: the front doors were unlocked.

Twenty-four hours later, a young girl is okay after locking herself in her bedroom when the man entered her house while she was home alone.

“A homeowner had received a notification on his cell phone from his doorbell system that a tall, skinny black man had entered his house through the front door and that his 14-year-old daughter was at home,” said Middletown Township Police Lt. John Michniewicz said.

The police say the intruder didn’t stop there.

“A subject that fits the same description has just entered another home,” said Michniewicz.

William McDuffie, 22, of Kitchener, is charged with 11 break-ins and resisting the arrest.

Police say McDuffie entered at least three houses on South Hawthorne Avenue in Langhorne just after 8 p.m. Monday night before attempting to run away.

“I think there was a short chase before they could take him into custody,” said Michniewicz.

The neighbors described what they saw.

“All the police just showed up and looked around the house. It looked like they had set up like a perimeter, ”said neighbor Allan Gaidas.

Police say they are still trying to figure out why McDuffie was there.

“We don’t know why he was in the area, we don’t know why he did what he did,” said Michniewicz.

“They use it as a passage so that a lot of people move around the street,” said Gaidas.

It became clear that all three affected houses had one thing in common.

“In all of these houses the door was unlocked at the time,” said Michniewicz.

McDuffie is being held in Bucks County Prison on a $ 250,000 bond pending preliminary hearing.

Again, police say that with so many students home for distance learning, tonight’s warning for all parents is to make sure all of your doors are locked at all times.
