WESTCHASE — Jon Pich was on his way home with sandwiches earlier this week when he received a text message from his 15-year-old son, Slader, who was home sick:
call police
Pich wondered: Was this a prank?
The family lives in a nice neighborhood. The house has an alarm system, but he hadn't set it. Soon, another text followed:
dont come home
A minute later:
hurry theyre taking everything
Slader, a freshman at Alonso High School, sent the texts while hiding behind a sectional sofa and an artificial plant as two men rifled through the home just before noon Monday, according to the family and the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.
Slader was unharmed, but the Piches offer their story as a reminder to homeowners to lock their doors and be alert.
"It's easy to feel complacent and safe," said Lisa Pich, who was showing her second-grade class at Westchase Elementary School the weather on her cell phone when her son texted her. "Now we feel extremely violated."
On Monday, Slader had stayed home from school with a stomachache and a sore back from a weekend soccer game. About 11:30 a.m., his dad, a partner for a consulting firm who was working at home that day, went to Subway to grab sandwiches for lunch.
Minutes after Pich left, someone repeatedly rang the doorbell and beat on the front door. Slader continued to play video games. After about five minutes, he peeked out from behind a wall but did not recognize the man he saw through the glass in the door.
He ran upstairs to the family's media room to grab his cell phone so that he could ask his dad whether the pest control people were coming that day.
He was about to dial his dad's number when he heard the garage door open. He immediately jumped behind a sectional sofa and an artificial palm tree.
Footsteps raced up the stairs. Slader turned his phone to silent and sent the first text to his dad. He breathed as lightly as he could as a man grabbed a laptop from a desk about 4 feet away from where Slader was crouched.
"I wasn't terrified. I was just a little shocked," the 5-foot-3 teenager recalled. "I was praying he wouldn't turn around and see me."
The man took the laptop downstairs. Then Slader heard men shout instructions to each other to check all the rooms. Slader continued to text his dad. Then he heard one of the men say, "We have to go!"
Slader climbed out of a window and onto a rooftop. From there, he texted his mom. Meanwhile, Jon Pich, had arrived home to find a newer model white Dodge Charger parked in the street, its engine running.
Fearing for his son's life, he grabbed a baseball bat from the garage and ran toward the front of the house. Before he got to the front door, it swung open. Two men carrying $3,000 worth of stuff — laptops, an Xbox and a TV — looked at Pich, shocked.
They stared each other down for several seconds before Pich yelled at them to put the items down and leave peacefully.
The men ran to the car with their loot and peeled out backward for half a block so that Pich could not see their license plate number.
Pich hopped into his car and tried tailing them but lost them. Then he rushed home and found his son on the roof.
Father and son hugged before deputies arrived moments later. The Sheriff's Office sent up a helicopter but was unable to find the car, authorities said.
According to sheriff's officials, both men were between 22 to 29 years old, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and 160 pounds. One man was black and wore a black coat. The other was white, possibly Hispanic, wearing a black sweat shirt.
"Slader was very brave," Lisa Pich said. "He made every decision right that day."
Sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter suggests that people call 911 immediately when anyone tries to break into a house.
"Turn on a radio, something that they can hear that would make them believe someone was in the house," Carter said. "But get the police on the phone first."
The Piches sat down and talked about the tips they'd pass along: Teach children how to use the panic button on the alarm system. Make sure visitors know someone is home. And educate children about what to do under different scenarios.
"I don't want to live in fear. I don't want my kids to live in fear," Lisa Pich said. "But we have to be smarter."

911 needs to have a manner of being silent.. too many times being silent is JUST as impt in saving a life as the very call itself...if there ISD a silent way to contact 911 and have them respond in like someone pls let us know...this kid did what he thought to do first and called his dad...nothing wrong w/that!!!

why are you crazy people assuming the dad did not call the police? Although the article doesn't specify that he did make the call, it does say ".... the police arrived..". Let's not bash people down - instead look for the positive lessons we can all learn from this and share with our kids to make our homes more safe!! Kudos to the Pichs, they are good people. Insurance scam is a ludicrous statement made by people who are ignorant.

The kid didn't want the intruders to know he was there, so used silent communication- sounds reasonable to me, just too bad there is no silent 911. Since was communicating, Dad knew he was OK, and knew to approach home with caution. Why are people saying did not call police? The article states that deputies arrived moments later. As fas as the alarm- how many times do you run out "just for a minute" and not bother with it?- especially if there is someone else home. Mine is not set during the day when the kids will be running in and out. I find no fault here, other than the fact that using a cell requires that you be able to tell the 911 operator where you are, and cannot call them silently.

I'll agree with some of you who said they were not prepared for this, as for the Insurence scam! not for 3k, both parents work and live in a nice neighborhood and their deductable is more than likely 2-5k so they can keep their premiums down. I do have to give this young man some kudos he thought of his dad walking in on these two and not his self which indicates this family is close, But always call 911 first and then text dad.

Okay, all you lightning fast responders - how many times have YOU had to act FOR THE FIRST TIME in a crisis? Lots of people freeze, particularly kids who are old enough to know fear. That's why role playing is important. This boy did fine. His dad saw he was okay, so he did what most people would do and tried to get some I.D. on the thieves. The one thing I'd NOT have done, was question if my kid was punking me. My kids wouldn't pull a prank like that. They know some things just aren't funny.

Observer, excellent points. I smell an insurance scam. Dad leaves door unlocked, no alarm set, and failure to call 911. It's called NEGLIGENCE. I'm sure the insurance company will be asking these questions. The father also has a baseball bat. I wonder why he didn't use it when the thugs had their hands full. At least no one took the sandwiches.

Im sorry to be cynical, but REALLY? Son doesnt call doesnt call 911 sees a truck with the engine running and doesnt take a tag number or the keys, let alone block the truck. But he does remember to take the bat out...and when confronted with robbers with their hands full... asks them to leave peacefully not knowing if his son is alright. As they run by him he doesnt take a swing at the men carrying the goods...but then decides to follow them around and loses them. HMMMMM didnt a kid get reported flying off in a balloon recently? Im sorry...but this doesnt ring right. If he had followed through on at least one of those actions..I would believe this story. The method of how they got the garage door to open also intrigues me. Now Im thinking insurance fraud. Put this story next to the one about the balloon boy.

They had an alarm yet it wasn’t set? This is a true case of no one having a plan. A prank? If you must text, have a key word so dad or mom knows right away something’s terribly wrong. Text what’s actually happening. Better yet, talk and say what’s happening. Then dad and mom can call 911 if son can’t do it himself. And the baseball bat thing? Better the home invaders ran away. Hey, I could go on, yet this is a case of dad and son not having a clue what to do. The good news; no one was injured, yet the perp’s haven’t been caught and they’ll keep on doing what they know best. And the next time they’ll look behind the couch, and that‘s when things begin getting worse. That’s why your very first reaction should be; call 911, then let the professionals take over.

For the record, save your pennies if I've known you longer than thirty years. Out of respect for you and your family I'll leave your names out. Out of respect for you and your family I have remained silent. Apparently this same respect was not inbred in you. That's a pity but you and yours are safe with me. The ones who took it upon themselves to do your bidding against an innocent family are wide open just like they've left MY family wide open. Herewith I refer to my extended family and network many of whom are currently suffering at your hands. Be on notice.

About Me

I was born a citizen of the world and have remained such but along with that: I'm a long time Tampa resident. Mixed bag at that as I've seen life here from nearly all angles and while somewhere in there I became slightly indoctrinated, I'm not too proud of the way people have taken over this city and run it with an iron fist for all but some. This city is working hard on creating just two classes. Thems and them dont's and they are working hard to shove some families down into the gutter for reasons known only to them. Some might be as petty as jealousy, some might be politically motivated, some might just be stupid and all are wrong. I want to believe we can get better but that would entail some stuff that I have no control over. I only can control myself and my reactions to what occurs.

My apologies

Addendum: Please check back to older posts as I am constantly updating them as I have more time to delve into the interesting subjects. I thought that comments were automatically enabled. I apologize for the inability to comment. I was able to comment but that's because I'm the author (duh) Now, everyone can comment. It's a free for all. Hey, as well, if you'd like to publish to this blog it'd be cool if you were like-minded but if you're not that's okay too -- just email me and I'll add your email to the list of publishers to this blog.
