A RUNAWAY Bay boy has inadvertently saved the family home from being fully ransacked, after showing up just at the right time.
Police say the 12-year-old noticed two masked men inside the Morala Avenue property when he arrived home from rugby league training, around 5.50 last night.
It’s thought one man may have been armed with a sledgehammer.

The boy ran back to his football club and called Police.
Officers quickly swarmed the area, but the would-be robbers took off and remain on the run.
