Barking alarm

A creeper broke into a Fourth Avenue home on Aug. 17, but his plans were thwarted when he came across his victim’s security system — a very loud dog.

The 42-year-old tenant said he was napping inside the home between 77th and 78th streets at 7 pm when the thief entered through a rear window.

His dog began barking, alerting the victim to the crime.

The thief ran off, but not without taking a trophy — a Nintendo Wii system, police said.

Where: 7709 4th Avenue
