PALISADES PARK, N.J. -- A Palisades Park homeowner fell down a flight of stairs fighting off a trio of teens who police said broke into his sleeping family's house before dawn after burglarizing a half-dozen neighborhood vehicles.
The husband wasn't seriously injured, nor was his wife or their 8-year-old daughter injured.
Officers responding to the Glen Avenue call around 5 a.m. Monday caught one of the three a block away.
He wasn't wearing shoes, they said -- the intruders had taken them off while sneaking into the home.
A Bergen County Sheriff's K-9 unit caught a second suspect nearly two blocks away.
The third was arrested soon after the other two were brought in.
Being held on $150,000 bail each in the Bergen County Jail were Kenny Alzate-Velandia, 19, of Leonia, and Andrew Chung, 18, and Dong-Woo Jung, 19, both of Palisades Park.
All face a combined 48 charges, including burglary, theft and possession of burglary tools.
