The not-so-innocent game of ‘kick-knock’ ends with 3 juveniles being charged

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WBFF) – If your child tells you they’re playing a game called “kick-knock,” it’s not an innocent game of fun, but one that centers around disturbing others. According to police, it involves kicking open doors to homes, not to steal anything, but just for the thrill of it. Now, they’ve arrested three juveniles in connection to the act.

Around 5:15 p.m. Saturday, officers responded to an apartment building in the area of Westbridge Dr. by West St. for a report of several juveniles kicking doors open. After they kicked open the door to one resident’s home, they were detained by the occupant until police arrived. They allegedly said they were playing a game of “kick-knock,” with no intention to steal.

Three Annapolis juveniles were charged including a 15-year-old, a 13-year-old, an 11-year-old boy; they were later released to their guardians after being charged with destruction of property.
