Nancy Johnson, who lives near Aurora Ave N & N 68th St, wrote to tell us about an attempted burglary that took place at her home on Thursday morning (October 13, 2011):
I was home and heard strange noises coming from the basement, went down there and didn’t see anything amiss, then saw a man walking through my backyard and out the gate heading south in the alley. I thought that he must have been a meter reader…. but he was dressed in a long black coat, black gloves and a black wool beanie type hat. Medium build about 6′ tall, I couldn’t tell what race he was.
This morning [Saturday] I found a broken window next to the basement door and I realized that the sounds I heard were probably from the door being pushed and the window being broken.
