911 transcript gives detail of Sen. Nicole Mitchell's alleged burglary. She says she won't resign.

When the stepmother of Democratic state Sen. Nicole Mitchell called police at 4:45 a.m. Monday, she said someone broke into her house and "ran downstairs into my basement," according to the 911 transcript obtained by the Star Tribune on Thursday.

Police asked her if she got a look at the person, to which she responded: "I tripped over 'em. Ah, he was on the floor next to my bed. He ran downstairs into my basement."

When they arrived, officers found Mitchell, a first-term senator from Woodbury, in the basement of her stepmother's Detroit Lakes house. Mitchell was dressed in black and admitted to entering her stepmother's house through a sliding basement window, according to the criminal complaint. Police said they found a flashlight covered with a black sock - dimming its brightness - near Mitchell, and a backpack wedged in the open basement window. That backpack contained several items, including a laptop that the criminal complaint suggests belonged to Mitchell's stepmother.
