A couple from the Bronx was reviewing videos that were captured by their baby monitor when they discovered something that is really alarming. The couple saw a burglar creeping around their kid’s room.
The police said that the burglar got into their home through a fire-escape window in their apartment that is located at Johnson Avenue and West 236th St. in Riverdale on Friday evening.
The baby monitor caught a footage that showed the burglar walking around the bedroom of their kid and even passed by its crib a couple of times, he even turned on a light in the room as he was searching the bedroom, the burglar even looked at the camera directly.
The NYPD released a video clip that showed the burglar rushing towards the window after he heard the voice of the 32-year-old father of the baby, luckily the kid was not harmed when this happened.
After the parents saw the video, they immediately reported the happening to the NYPD.
The burglar that was seen in the video did not only went inside the house of the couple after he went out the fire escape, but the burglar also went inside another home that was near the apartment just a couple of minutes later.
The NYPD said that the next house that he went into was owned by a 28-year-old woman, he stole 2 bracelets, 6 necklaces, a bag, and a Modelo Bicycle.
The 28-year-old woman was not inside her house when the burglar entered her house, no CCTV camera caught him entering her house.
The burglar got away with things that are approximately worth $1200.
The Police added that they think this is not the first time that a camera caught the burglar on camera.
On January 15, a man who has a strong resemblance to the thief used a fire exit near the West 238th Street and Waldo Avenue to get inside an apartment. The burglar went away by stealing watches and electronics that were worth $7,000.
A CCTV camera captured the man walking out of the said building, the camera caught a clear look of his face as he looked at the camera directly.
The NYPD Police released footages of the burglars on Tuesday.
