Police are looking for a man (pictured above) who allegedly burglarized an apartment building in the vicinity of Broadway and West 69th Street, on February 28, at 3:45 p.m.
According to police, “The individual was able to enter the building and an unlocked apartment once inside. The individual proceeded to remove approximately $2,800 worth of electronics from the apartment before fleeing the location westbound on West 69 Street. The apartment was unoccupied at the time of the incident and no injuries have been reported as a result.”
Anyone with information regarding this incident or individual is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/, on Twitter @NYPDTips.
All calls are strictly confidential.
FYI: “Although robbery and burglary may sound the same, they’re actually different crimes,” according to U.S. News & World Report. “The most important thing to remember is that burglary involves entering a home or another building illegally whether or not the criminal steals something, whereas robbery involves taking property from a person through threats or fear of harm.”
