This incident happened to me last weekend, and I was hoping somebody could advise as to how I should have handled the situation.
Saturday morning, I got up at 8:30, and took my dog for a quick walk around the block. When I came to the house that was catti-corner to mine, I saw the car parked in front of their house had its window smashed in, stereo ripped out and glove compartment torn to pieces. I went to the front door and rang the doorbell. Soon, a woman came down in her bathrobe and cracked the window of the front room, shouting "What do you want?" I said that the car in front of her house had been broken into. She told me that it wasn't her car and to go away, then slammed the window shut.
Should I have just continued walking past the car? Should I have just called the police? Or was I right to talk to that woman?
