Early Sunday morning, a Columbus Lane resident was awakened by the sounds of someone knocking on, and then pulling on her first floor sliding glass door. She has it secured by a handle lock, and a metal pipe that acts as a stopper in the door's track. The woman peered out and saw the would-be burglar who fled upon being spotted.
