4500 block of Redbud Drive — A woman was awakened Friday morning by two men attempting to break into her house, according to a Denton police report.

The men fled before police arrived.

The woman told police she and her roommate were asleep at 9:30 a.m. when she heard knocking on the front door. She looked through the peephole and saw two men she didn’t recognize, she reported.

She woke her roommate and they remained quiet as the men knocked and one of the men tried to open the door, the woman told police.

After a few minutes, the woman heard one of the men suggest they try the back door, she reported.

The men went to the back door and attempted to open it, according to the report.

The woman called her father, who told her to call police. Her father also sent a friend to check on the situation.

The friend told police he saw a car with two men parked in front of the women’s house. One of the men exited the car with something in his hand but quickly returned to the car and fled when the friend yelled at him, the friend reported.

A neighbor, who had been out running, told police he saw the car stopping at several houses in the area.

He told police he also saw the two men get out at the women’s house.
