Once inside his neighbor's home, Jonathan found a scared little girl, whom he carried back into the street and handed off to his wife before running back in to see if he could find anyone else.

He then found the young girl's mother and a "terrified, frantic" infant — all while the intruder was still somewhere in the house. The patriarch and owner of the property was not home at the time the incident occurred.
