Police say a 12-year-old girl thwarted a home invasion near Seneca by punching one of the intruders.

According to Wichita Sgt. Bob Gulliver, police responded to a report of an attempted robbery at a residence at 3:10 p.m. Sunday.

Gulliver said a 30-year-old woman told officers her daughter answered the door and a 16-year-old boy grabbed her and pushed her inside the house.

Police say a 19-year-old man followed the 16-year-old into the house before the girl punched one of the suspects.

According to Gulliver, both suspects fled the residence. Neither suspect has been found.
