Caught in the act

Police arrested a man who they say tried to break into a woman’s Troy Avenue home on June 22.

The woman told police she was in her home near Avenue L at 7 pm when someone started ringing the doorbell repeatedly, but she didn’t answer.

Police say the suspect then made his way into the backyard, and stuck his head through a kitchen window in an attempt to get into the house. The woman saw him, and screamed, scaring him off, according to the police report.

Big haul

A burglar hit payday at a woman’s E. 51st Street home on June 20 — swiping more than $25,000 and a laptop.

The bandit made his way into the home near Avenue K sometime between 4 and 7 pm and grabbed $25,450 and the computer, according to police.

The woman told cops that the intruder may have entered through the back window, but police say they didn’t find any sign of forced entry.

Was it a ghost?

Someone possibly broke into a woman’s E. 52nd Street on June 22 — but didn’t leave any trace behind and didn’t steal a thing.

The woman told police the intruder infiltrated her home near Avenue J sometime between 5 and 9 pm.

She told authorities that none of her belongings were missing, and police said they did not find any indication of a break-in.
