FRIGHTENING FOOTAGE: Boro Park Resident Finds Knife-Wielding Burglar In His Kitchen


A Boro Park homeowner was terrified to find a man armed with a large knife in his kitchen this past Friday night.

Boro Park Shomrim say the incident occurred at around 12:30AM on Friday night / Shabbos morning in the vicinity of 11th Ave and 54th Street.

The homeowner was awakened by a noise in his house, and went to see what it was, when he came face-to-face with the man seen in the attached footage.

Thankfully, the perpetrator fled the home without harming him.

Shomrim has received multiple reports of burglaries in that same area on Friday night. They remind residents to make sure their homes are properly secured and to always report any suspicious activity immediately.

  1. I would think a burglar would take off his shoes as to not make noise. The photo is clear enough so that if he is a recidivist the cops from the 66 Precinct should recognize him. Burglars like to work in areas that they are familiar with.
    I wonder if in this instance unlocked doors or windows made for easy entry.

    You expected NYPD to be standing at his front door, and yours and your parents and your in-laws? Not everything should be blamed on another!
