Waking nightmare

A thief crept into a man’s Benson Avenue home on June 4 while he was sleeping on the couch and took his cellphone.

The victim told police that he was napping on his sofa in his apartment between Bay 20th Street and 19th Avenue at 1 pm. But as he caught some shut-eye, a sneaky thief entered the pad through an open window in the back of the apartment, according to footage captured on security camera. When the victim awoke, his cell, which was left charging beside the couch, was gone, said police.
