LAUREL, Del. (AP)-- Police say a teenager went after her parents with two kitchen knives after they took away her cell phone, forcing the frightened adults to lock themselves in a bedroom until officers arrived.
Authorities were called to the home at about 3 a.m. Sunday. Police say the girl violently attacked the door while her parents hid in the bedroom.
Investigators say it started when the girl's father took her cell phone away while she used it in her bedroom. The father suspected the girl stole money from her mother's purse to buy more minutes on a prepaid phone card.
