EXCLUSIVE: 911 recording of Port Arthur boy hiding from burglars

Posted: Updated:

12News has exclusively obtained the chilling 911 tape of a young Port Arthur boy terrorized by burglars while home alone Tuesday.

12-year-old Deion Murdock locked himself in his mother's bedroom and hid in the closet after police say two men broke into his house.

A dispatcher with the Port Arthur Police Department kept him calm throughout the terrifying experience.

"You're doing good, doing real good, doing perfect.  Your mom's going to be so proud of you," said the dispatcher as Murdock hid in a closet.

When officers arrived they found two men fleeing the house. The two suspects were caught and arrested.

Deion was unharmed.
