It's been just over a week since a burglar broke into a woman's apartment in the Lionshead complex near 108th Street and Blondo Street.

She tells WOWT 6 News since she's come back one question remains on her mind.

"Why me? Just those two words, why me?" said the victim who wants to remain anonymous.

It's her first apartment on her own and she thought she did everything right to stay safe.

She chose an apartment on the third floor, she always locks her doors, and her building has a security buzzer door. But since the break-in, she's believes she finally pieced together how it all happened.

On the day of the burglary, the victim said her buzzer door wasn't working. So the burglar just walked on in and went right up the stairs.

Then with a crowbar, the burglar popped her door open and stole her 50 inch TV and laptop.

But the crook didn't stop there said the victim, "One of my other neighbors got broken into too."

Down the hall, more electronics were stolen.

But from it all, police tell WOWT 6 News the way this victim acted when she got home was exactly right.

Anyone who walks into a home and see something wrong or something missing, should first leave and then call police. The reason these things are so important, is because it's impossible to tell if the burglar is still inside and police have the best chance of finding good evidence in a home left untouched.

This victim tells WOWT 6 News her buzzer door is now fixed and her apartment door has been repaired. She wants the burglar to know she is not going to be scared away.
