I would like to share with you an incident that happened to us this past Friday night, at our home in Crown Heights.
This past Friday night at about 4:45 AM (as was confirmed by our neighbor’s security camera) – while we were asleep – a burglar broke into our home by bending the bars on the dining room window that is in the back of the house.
He proceeded to steal items from the dining room, kitchen and an unoccupied bedroom. The light and air conditioner were on in the dining room, but this guy clearly has no fear. Also, the security camera shows him leaving 55 minutes after he came, so he was definitely in no rush to leave.
The miracle here is that we did not wake up while he was in our home…Baruch Hashem we are ok.
Last night two officers plus a supervisor came to investigate, followed by two detectives and two members of the Evidence Collection Team. It was good to see that the NYPD took this seriously.
Please let your readers know, that the window was closed but not locked – we were sure the bars on the window were enough to keep anyone out. Please take all precautions to make sure that this does not chas v’sholom happen to anyone else!
