The sandman

Police arrested a 40-year-old man who they say burglarized a woman’s Ocean Avenue apartment on June 18, taking credit cards and cash.

The victim told police that she was asleep inside her home between Jerome and Voorhies avenues at 2 am when she awoke to the terrifying scene of the suspect snooping through her darkened home.

Upon noticing that he woke the victim, the suspect fled through a fire-escape window, taking a bag containing the victim’s belongings with him, cops said. During a round of police questioning, the suspect admitted to the home invasion, cops said.

Car crook
