One of two intruders who terrorised a 21-year-woman during a daylight home invasion tried to kick in the woman’s bedroom door after she fled there as her last point of refuge. Madeleine Italiano said two people smashed their way into her parent’s farm house south of Harvey last week before ransacking the property — only the arrival of her father on a motorbike stopped the ordeal. Ms Italiano said a woman threatened her and tried to bash down her locked bedroom door. “I thought I was going to die,” she said. When Ms Italiano heard knocking and screaming at the front door, she was hesitant to answer and called her father, who was out on their Benger farm. “I told him someone was here and asked if he could see the car,” she said. Ms Italiano said the intruders were driving a blue sedan, then drove to the back of the house. The next thing she remembers was hearing a loud shatter as the burglars smashed through a locked door to enter the house. “I started screaming and calling my dad but then the phone cut off,” she said. Ms Italiano said she locked herself in her bedroom and pushed against the door as a woman tried to kick the door down. “She started threatening me and told me to open it,” Ms Italiano said. “She then started kicking the door with her foot, trying to get in. I just knew I could not give up.” While the woman was trying to kick down the door, Ms Italiano said she heard another man’s voice echoing throughout the house. The pair fled with Ms Italiano’s purse and jewellery. “My house was my safe place but it will take me a while to feel safe here again,” Ms Italiano said.
