MANTECA, Calif. (AP) - A 13-year-old Central Valley boy is being credited with foiling a burglary.

Alex Gouveia told KCRA-TV he was at his home in Manteca on Tuesday because school was out for students when someone began pounding on the door and wouldn't go away. He called his dad, who told him to call 911.

He then hid in the backyard while he talked to police. He says three men broke into the house and began ransacking it, gathering jewelry, video games and other items.

At least two of them were still around when police arrived, and officers took them into custody.

Police identified the suspects as 25-year-old Christian Flores, of Manteca, 20-year-old Mario Blanco, of Manteca, and 32-year-old Christopher Collum, of Castro Valley.
