Family awakened by morning prowler

This story was published by the Ypsilanti Daily Press on Friday, December 9, 1910.

Officer Walter Pierce was called to the home of S. T. Glanfield at 414 Ellis Street (now Washtenaw Ave) Wednesday morning, about 3 o’clock in response to a burglar alarm. The girls in the house claim that they were awakened by some one prowling about under their window on the west side of the house. The family were all aroused and a hunt made for the man but he could not be found, they therefore called an officer who found tracks going from the front of the house under the windows to the rear of the house but the man was evidently frightened away before he had succeeded in making an entrance. The girls were so badly frightened that they were unable to go to bed the rest of the night but insisted in sitting up and kept the light burning bright till daybreak.
