Houston police are searching for a crook investigators say tried to rob a southeast Houston home.

A 15-year-old boy and his two younger brothers were home alone when the break-in happened Thursday morning, police say.

According to officers, the 15-year-old called police for help at around 11 a.m. and said a burglar was trying to break into their home on Falvey Street and Maroby Street through a back window.

The boys were not injured.
