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

Police arrested a 20-year-old man who they say pilfered a car parked on E. 21st Street on Nov. 26 — taking the victim’s credit cards, driver’s license, and checkbook.

The victim told police that he left his vehicle between Shore Parkway and Voorhies Avenue at 11 pm, and returned to find that it had been looted and his property was missing. Cops caught up with the suspect after he attempted to cash four checks totally $2,100 using the victim’s account, officials said.
