An attempted robbery goes haywire overnight thanks to an alert mother. Our media partner 10/11 news reports that police were called to the 3500 block of Huntington Avenue just after 4:20 this morning when they saw a man open a ground floor window and climb into an apartment. Inside were two children and their mother. After a short time the mother kicked the would-be thief out of the apartment and he got away on foot. He is described as an African American male in his 20's about 5 foot 7 wearing a red coat or shirt.
