PRAIRIE VILLAGE, Kan. — A woman has her dog to thank for scaring off a would-be robber.
Venus Hernandez said she was sick and at home Thursday evening with her 1-year-old dog, “Chewie.”
She said around 7 p.m. they both saw a shadow pass her bedroom.
Chewie saw it too and started barking ferociously, Hernandez said.
“Whoever was in the house was running past and hit my Christmas tree and the Christmas tree kind of fell over and came back over and he had chased them out the back door.”
Hernandez said Chewie hasn’t left her side since.
The Olathe Police Department’s K9 unit responded, but didn’t find anyone.
