HQ 911 Call, Henry Louis Gates Jr. - No Newscasters

The woman who called 911 to report a possible break-in at the home of black Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. makes no mention of race.

Cambridge police released a recording of the call Monday after more than a week of controversy over Gates' arrest on a disorderly conduct charge on July 16.

The caller, Lucia Whalen, says she saw two men pushing on the door of the house. She tells police she is not sure if the men live there or not. When pressed for a description by a dispatcher, she says one of the men may have been Hispanic.
