Man Breaks Into Elmhurst Apartment of 64-Year-Old Woman, Startles Unharmed Victim: NYPD

The suspect (Provided by NYPD)

Feb. 17, 2021 By Michael Dorgan

A man broke into a 64-year-old woman’s apartment in Elmhurst early Monday–while the victim was sleeping–as part of a burglary attempt.

The suspect entered the apartment, located in the vicinity of Elmhurst Avenue and Broadway, through an unlocked bathroom window at around 4:40 a.m., according to police.

Once inside, the man’s movements woke the woman who screamed – causing him to flee the scene. The suspect escaped out the same bathroom window that he got in through, police said.

The woman was not injured and there was no property stolen, police said.

Police released CCTV footage of the suspect taken during the break-in that was obtained from a nearby surveillance camera.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this male 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, on Twitter @NYPDTips.
