EDMOND, Okla. - It all began around 8 p.m. Wednesday.

A 12-year-old was inside a home in southeast Edmond playing video games.

That's when an intruder kicked in the back door.

Look closely, and you can see a large footprint on the back door.

Investigators said that's where 25-year old Matthew Brumely kicked in the french door of the Edmond home.

Caller: "I heard a big, loud crack, and we don't know what's happening right now."

The 12-year-old boy was inside with his petite grandmother.

They hid in a closet and called 911.

Caller: "Are you sending people? Because, I don't know if he has like a weapon or something."

Dispatcher: "Listen, they're on the way. We've got lots of help on the way, but I need you to not hang up the phone, okay?"

Little did they know, the suspect was also hiding at the other end of house, under a little girl's bed.

"While he's on the phone with us, the suspect calls 911 and says he's being chased around this house and he's afraid and hiding under a bed," said police spokesperson Jenny Wagnon.

The paranoid intruder eventually raced out of the bedroom and through a window when police arrived.

"He jumped though a window, through the glass window of one of the bedrooms of the house," Wagnon said. "He cut himself up very severely."

Police don't believe he had an intention of burglarizing the home.

Brumley had been arrested earlier this week under similar circumstances.

According to that report, the suspect stated "he was running from subjects who were chasing him in a school bus" and "Brumley admitted to snorting an unknown powder" before the arrest.

"Drugs definitely payed a part in this situation," Wagnon said.
