An intruder was caught red-handed in a woman’s 89th Street kitchen on Dec. 20, said police.

The woman told police that she heard a noise coming from the kitchen of her apartment between Third and Fourth avenues and when she went to investigate she found a man in her kitchen. The weasel fled when the woman screamed, according to a police report.

The would-be burglar left empty-handed, authorities said.


A burglar plundered a man’s apartment on Ridge Boulevard on Dec. 19, said police.

The man told police that when he returned to his apartment between 92nd and 93rd streets at 7 am his kitchen window was wide open and his apartment was tossed. The crook swiped an Apple MacBook Pro and $1,000 in Polish currency, officials said.

Big score

A safecracker broke into a Tabor Court home’s safe on Dec. 17 and stole $41,500 worth of treasury bonds, said police.

The man told police that an unknown person entered the apartment between 12th and 13th avenues at 10 am. The thief made off with the bonds without a trace, said police.

Rear window
