Police are looking for two teenagers they say were caught on video committing a burglary in Flatlands — one of them wearing a rather distinctive backpack.
Authorities released surveillance video of two males trying the front door of a house on East 57th Street near Avenue M, then walking down the alleyway to the rear of the home, and later emerging from a side window.
One of the suspects, estimated to be 5-foot-10, was wearing a white hat, a gray T-shirt, gray sweatpants, and white sneakers. The other suspect, estimated at 5-foot-8, was wearing a black T-shirt, black shorts with a red stripe, black sneakers, and had a camouflage backpack with a shark-mouth design.
The break in occurred sometime between 6:00 am on July 20 and 3:00 am on July 22, and the suspects stole jewelry and electronics, before fleeing on foot, according to police.
