A jerk in a hurry broke through a Manhattan Avenue apartment window and stole some cash on April 10.
The victim left his home, which is between Dupont and Eagle streets, at about noon, but when he returned at 2 pm, he found that his rear window was smashed in, and blood was all over the floor.
Closer inspection revealed that the thug had stolen $100 from the victim’s pillow and fled through the front door.
