There are few things more unsettling than hearing your window shatter in the middle of the night, an experience Emmy winner Viola Davis and husband, Julian Tennon, recently endured after burglars attempted to break into their California home.
TMZ reports the couple was asleep in their upstairs bedroom when they heard the sound of glass breaking in the middle of the night, only to awake and realize the perpetrators climbed a ladder to the second floor and jumped onto their private balcony. The couple then turned on the lights, which sent the attempted thieves running.

The incident was reportedly recorded via surveillance video, with the Tennons filing a police report in hopes of catching the three men seen “wearing hoodies and gloves.”
