An Ocoee Street teen said she locked herself in her bathroom when she heard two people burglarizing her house. She said one of the men broke into the bathroom.

Charged with aggravated burglary are Micheal Duane Manley, 25, and Dominique Cal, 20.

When an officer arrived to investigate, he saw a black Ford Explorer backed into the driveway of an abandoned house across the street from where the burglary took place. Manley and Cal were in the vehicle.

The 16-year-old victim said she heard a knock at her front door, but she did not see anyone when she looked outside. She said she locked herself in the bathroom after hearing the sound of glass breaking at a rear window. She said she hid in the shower.

Officers said there were items taken in the burglary that were in the vehicle occupied by Manley and Cal.

Police said while they were investigating the case that the female victim went over to Cal and assaulted him. He was then placed in a patrol car for his safety. The teen was charged with assault.
