Man with Knife Breaks into Boro Park Home

BORO PARK — Cops are looking for a man who broke into a house early Saturday with a knife.

On December 14 at around 1 a.m., a man entered a house on Fort Hamilton Parkway and 54th Street from an unlocked back door. He was carrying a knife and walked around the kitchen for a bit.

According to the cops, a 65-year-old man was sleeping in his bedroom when he heard a sound. So, the resident got up and slammed his bedroom door shut. That noise must have scared the burglar because cops say he then fled.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).  The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
