TORONTO (CNN/CBC NEWS) - This isn't your typical home invasion. It turns out a pair of burglars in Toronto were just after food in the kitchen.
From the attic in the middle of the night, two young raccoons burrowed their way into Al-Hillal's kitchen.
"We heard scratching and that...and water was running," said homeowner Zak Al-Hillal.
The raccoons feasted at the fruit bowl and were less than friendly when the homeowner discovered their "crime."
"We were really scared because the mother jumped on us and I didn't know what to do," Al-Hillal said.
So Al-Hillal and his wife ran to their bedroom, barricaded the door and dialed 911. When police arrived, Al-Hillal threw the keys to them from a balcony and let the cops shoo the raccoons out.
Officials say the homeowners should have seen this coming. They had a hole capped in their roof the day before.
