A man broke into an 86th Street house and attempted to climb into bed with an unsuspecting woman at night on May 18.
The 25-year-old victim was asleep in the basement of the house, which is between 11th and 12th avenues, when she was awakened by a man who put his finger to her lips — the universal sign to keep quiet — and started to climb into the bed.
The victim screamed, and her mother came downstairs and pushed the suspect, who then ran out.

The 18-year-old victim was between 11th and 12th avenues when two men approached from behind and one, who appeared to be holding a gun underneath his sweatshirt, threatened, “Give me your money or I will shoot you.” The second suspect reached into the teenager’s pockets and grabbed his iPod and wallet. The two thugs fled toward 12th Avenue.
