According to authorities, on Monday, April 16 at around 7 p.m., the burglar tried to enter an apartment at 71st Street and 20th Avenue through a rear bedroom window from the fire escape. The victim, a 34-year-old woman, saw the perp entering her room, yelled at him and filmed him on her phone. The man never got inside the apartment.
