Burglar nab

A 19-year-old thief was arrested on Aug. 5 after he and an accomplice tried to break into a Flatlands Avenue home.

Police said the suspect was spotted trying to pry open a back window to the house, which is located between East 101st and East 102nd streets, at 1:35 pm.

A witness said the thief and his partner never got the window opened, but were successful in unchaining two bikes found in their victim’s backyard.

When the witness intervened, the suspect and his pall threatened to beat him up, then ran off, only to be apprehended by police.

Where: 1002 Flatlands Avenue
