Break-in turns home invasion when W’burg woman walks in

Not so camouflaged: Police are searching for these two in connection with a freaky Williamsburg break-in.

Police are on the hunt for a pair of thieves who they say burglarized a woman’s Williamsburg apartment and, when she walked in on them, trapped her and stole her laptop.

The woman came home at 8:35 am on July 16 to find the two prowlers in her pad near the intersection of Meserole Street and Bushwick Avenue, cops said.

She tried to run as soon as she saw the intruders, but one of them grabbed her and held her down on the floor while the other grabbed her computer out of a bedroom, according to a report. The dastardly duo then fled, loot in hand, per the NYPD.

Police described both men as six-feet tall and 25–30 years old, one with a medium build and dark hair in a ponytail, and the other heavyset.
