(Memphis) Two teens were arrested Monday after police said they tried to break into a  Hickory Hill apartment with someone inside.

It happened in the 5900 block of North Littlebrook Circle.

Police say a woman was inside her apartment just before noon when she heard someone knock at her front door and then saw someone trying to break in through her back sliding glass door.

The woman was able to scare the burglar away from her apartment, but moments later, she heard glass break at an apartment two doors away.

The woman called police, who arrested the teens.

Ceasar Garcia, 18, admitted to breaking in the apartment and trying to break into the woman's place.

The other teen with him, who is underage, also admitted to taking part and said the two had burglarized a home in Bartlett back in October.

Both are facing charges of burglary, attempted burglary, and theft.
