An illegal immigrant from the Middle east was arrested Wednesday during a burglary in Plano. WFAA reported:
The arrest of a burglary suspect in Plano on Wednesday could represent a break in a string of more than two dozen similar crimes since last October.
Riashat Ishmam, 17, provided authorities with the critical and timely information they needed to make take a man into custody. He had been playing games on the computer when the doorbell rang.
“Thirty seconds later, he starts vigorously knocking on the door,” the teenager said.
Riashat took us through his house and explained how he narrowly escaped an encounter with a burglar.
“I go in and lock the door and I go into the bathroom,” he said, standing on the second floor of his parents’ Plano home.
Riashat didn’t know where the intruder was at the time, but later realized the burglar broke through a back window screen. Plano police would later identify the burglar as Farhood Sani Allahdadi, 28, of McKinney.
Riashat told News 8 that Allahdadi had also broken through the bedroom door with force. The door was shattered around the doorknob.
A panicked teen only had his phone with him — but it was all he needed.
“Since this door doesn’t have a lock, I just stood still after I called 911, and luckily he didn’t even check the bathroom,” Riashat said.
The young man said he heard Allahdadi combing through drawers and moving quickly.
But the intruder did not get far, because officers arrived within six minutes of that phone call and picked up Allahdadi as he climbed out the window.
Farhood Allahdadi is being held on an immigration hold. He is here illegally.
