Police are looking for the burglar who broke into a woman’s Brooklyn Heights apartment, before sexually assaulting the sleeping victim and looting the residence.
According to police, the 43-year-old woman was sleeping inside her apartment on May 12 at around 2 a.m., when the burglar entered the home near Middagh and Henry streets.
Once inside, the suspect made his way to the woman’s bed and sexually assaulted her.
