In River Falls, break-ins can be handled with civility
It was almost 3 a.m. New Year's Day. An 82-year-old woman woke to noises and lights turned on in her house in the 1300 block of South Main Street. She called out but there was no answer. So she got out of bed and found a young man standing in her bathroom.
Why are you here? she asked the man who seemed drunk.
He replied that a lady had told him to come stay in the house.
No, said the elderly woman, you're mistaken and must leave.
