Police Break Into Wrong Apartment, Scare Half-Naked Mom and Kids (Video)

Police broke down the wrong door of the wrong home when they conducted a late night, no-knock raid last week in Bakersfield, Calif.

Jessica Walker (pictured) says she was undressing and about to get into the shower when she heard police breaking down her door last Saturday night at around 11 p.m.

“[My kids] were screaming. They were screaming, ‘No, mom, no!’ And they were afraid,” Walker told 23 ABC (video below).

Walker was partially nude when police forced their way into her home with a battering ram and ordered the single mom to get on the floor.

“They were right there telling me, ‘Come down with your hands up, get down!’ and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, what’s going on.’ My, uh, area was out,” Walker recalled, pointing to her chest.

Armed with a warrant, the police searched the home and questioned Walker. However, the cops eventually realized they had been given the wrong address by an informant.

"We are doing an administrative review of the incident to determine whether there was anything that could have been done to prevent this," Bakersfield Police Sgt. Joe Grubbs told The Bakersfield Californian.

“I’m very angry,” stated Walker. “I mean I know they were trying to do their job but what they should have done is did more investigation into what apartment it was.”

The police did apologize and a city employee came out to repair her door, which still doesn't lock. Walker says she lives in a neighborhood that is not always safe.
