Search contines for man who threatened girl with gun

- SANDY, Utah (ABC 4 News) – The search continued Monday for a man who broke into a Sandy home and threatened an 11-year-old girl with a gun.

In the 911 tape released Saturday, it is clear the girl is scared and still shaken by the experience. She ran to a neighbor’s house before the man could harm her.

Below are excerpts taken from the telephone call with a dispatcher:

Dispatcher: Do you know what kind of gun it was?

Girl: It was a pistol. It was in his hand. He was pointing it at me.

Girl: I was inside my house on the couch watching tv.

Dispatcher: And he went into your home?

Girl: Uh huh

Dispatcher: Did he say anything to you?

Girl: Um, I went to grab my phone and he told me not to.

Dispatcher: You went to grab your phone and he told you not to?

Girl: Yeah, I was home alone.

Dispatcher: Which direction did he go, do you know? North, south, east or west?

Girl: Um, I wasn't paying attention. I just ran.

Girl: He was still in my house and I went to the neighbors and they weren't there so I went to the next person down.

The suspect is described as a middle aged African American man with braids in his hair. He was last seen on the 9200 block of South Quail Drive wearing dark clothing.
