"When I saw the video I was just horrified. I didn’t even know what I was going to walk into when I came home," Jewell said.
The video shows a person knocking on the door of the house, then waiting. A car then pulls up and a man gets out.
"And the taller one tried to kick in my door twice," Jewell said. "He had a screwdriver in his pocket that he pulled up, and he tried to pry open my front window with a screwdriver."
The men left after they were unable to get into the house.
Jewell said neighbors told her that they had seen one of the men knocking on other doors and even asking someone for a gas can.
"I was really comforted and really touched by everybody reaching out to me, even directly giving me their cellphone numbers," Jewell said.
She said she hopes her neighbors are on the lookout in case the would-be robbers return.
"I was just hoping to make everybody aware. It’s the holiday season," Jewell said.
Some neighbors posted on Nextdoor.com that they saw the occupants of the car possibly casing the area.
