No escape

A thief broke into a Woodruff Avenue home on Jan. 6 — not knowing that his victim was hiding on the fire escape, calling 911.

Police said that the 43-year-old woman was inside her home, which is near Ocean Avenue, at 2:30 am when the thief — who she didn’t know — began to force the door.

When the thief came in, the woman jumped onto the fire escape and called 911 on her cellphone.

Cops quickly arrived at the scene, arresting the thief before he found his victim.
