ALAMEDA -- A 12-year-old girl jumped from a second-story window Saturday after at least five teenagers forced their way into her home at Alameda Point as part of settling a dispute that occurred earlier that day, police said.
The girl was not hurt, though police said staff at a hospital held her for observation.
Investigators are still piecing together what sparked the confrontation. But Alameda police Lt. Ted Horlbeck said the teens arrived outside the girl's residence in the 200 block of Stardust Place in at least one vehicle and forced open the front door about 6:35 p.m.
Seven people were inside, including a woman, 35, and a 6-year-old boy, Horlbeck said. All are residents except for a 13-year-old girl, who police described as a neighbor who was visiting.
The residents fled into a bedroom for safety, which then led the teenagers to force open the bedroom door and the girl to jump from the window, police said.
Officers dispatched to the neighborhood, which was once part of the Alameda Naval Air Station, arrested Jobie Morton, 18, and two 15-year-old boys, near the scene.
Among the charges Morton and the boys face is residential robbery because they are suspected of stealing money from the woman's purse while inside the home, Horlbeck said.
While no weapons were displayed during the break-in, 911 callers reported the group was armed and allegedly threatening to kill one victim.
