JACKSON COUNTY, Kan. (WIBW) - If you're starting to get visions of a Macaulay Culkin, you're not the only one. A Jackson Co. kid foiled a break in at a rural home Thursday morning, according to Sheriff Tim Morse.

The child, who is under 13, called 911 around 10:30 a.m. after hearing someone banging at the door, explained Morse. While authorities were still on the line, a man kicked in the back door and started searching the home.

The kid confronted him and the suspect tried grabbing the phone. When he heard the dispatchers voice, though, he high-tailed it out of there and climbed into a dark blue car with rusty wheels, a cracked windshield, and a spare tire on the driver's side rear wheel.

The suspect was described as a white man in his 30's with blond hair and a beard. He was wearing a green and white striped polo shirt and khaki shorts. He had a Bluetooth ear piece and spoke with a stutter.
