A woman confronted two male intruders in her home in Willmot on Wednesday.
Police said the woman returned to her home in Resolution Avenue about 12.50pm.
She heard noises inside before she entered and phoned triple-0.
She then entered her home and saw one young male run out a back door.
Another young male then brushed past her and also ran into the backyard.
Several neighbours heard the noise and came to the woman’s aid.
A short time later police arrested a young male in Shalvey.
They also found property on him they alleged was stolen.
He was later charged with aggravated break-and-enter and appeared in Parramatta Children’s Court on Thursday.
Police said they were still seeking two other young males seen near the crime scene.
Anyone with any information is urged to contact Mount Druitt detectives on 9675 0699 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
