Authorities were hailing a 7-year-old Norwalk boy as a hero Tuesday after he hid in a bathroom and called 911 as three armed attackers burst into his home and threatened his parents. During the harrowing emergency call, the child pleaded with Los Angeles County sheriff's dispatchers to send help. "Can you come really fast? Please! Please! . . . They have guns. They shoot my mom and dad," the boy said, according to a copy of the 911 tape released by authorities. The incident began about 8:30 a.m. when the three suspects, armed with handguns, stormed through an unlocked door and said they were going to take what they wanted, the Sheriff's Department said.

This 2-year-old house inspired by the historic homes of Belgium feels as if it could be sitting in the countryside rather than in a Santa Monica neighborhood just blocks from the boutiques on Montana Avenue. The house, completed in 2008, is constructed with 17th century limestone floors, Belgian bluestone details, elaborate ironwork and refitted antique doors. The living room, which features a fireplace with a floor-to-ceiling stone face, has twin sets of iron doors that open to a cobblestone courtyard and fountain.

The group's chaperon, Don Grabbe, and Debora Brooke, a Capitol Police sergeant, helped deliver the 4-pound, 5-ounce baby boy.
