A witness told police that she was between Corbin Place and Hampton Avenue at 7:15 pm when she saw the suspect enter the victim’s apartment through a window. She then saw the suspect standing on the roof of the victim’s apartment building, taking various jewelry from a small, wooden box, police said.
