Plano, TX – Farhood Sani Allahdadi, 28, of McKinney,was caught leaving a window in the 3800 block of Suffolk Lane at 3:06 p.m. – six minutes after Plano PD received a 911 call from the homeowners’ 17-year-old son, who was home alone at the time of the incident.
“I was on my computer when I heard the doorbell ring,” Riashat Ishmam said. “I went downstairs and peaked through the door and saw a stranger outside.I decided not to say anything and went back to my room. He didn’t leave, and started knocking on the door and banging on the door.”
When Ishmam heard the suspect pounding on the door, he grabbed his cellphone and ran to his parents’ bedroom, the only door in the home with a lock. From inside the master bathroom, Ishmam Called 911 as the suspect entered through an unlocked back window.
“I heard a lot of noise out there, and I didn’t know if he had a weapon on him,” said the terrified teen.“As soon as I finished giving the police my address, my phone died. He charged upstairs and knocked open my parent’s bedroom door and at that moment, I thought I was going to die.”
Ishmam did his best to remain calm, collected and undetected in the bathroom – which has no lock on the door – as the burglar ransacked his parents’ dressers, using a cellphone flashlight to illuminate the room. The teen said the suspect left his cellphone on the dresser and was trying to escape when Plano PD arrived and arrested him without incident.
“I’m just thankful that we live in Plano and the cops respond really fast,” he said. “I live really close to the station; I can’t believe that it happened to our house. We live in one of the safest cities in the world – I never imagined this happening to my house.”
Allahdadi was caught with a Walgreens bag full of jewelry. A ring was also found in the suspect’s pocket. The teen’s family was able to identify and confirm that the property belonged to them.
Allahdadi is being held at the Collin County Detention Center for burglary of a habitation, a second degree felony, and an immigration detainer.
