Glad the victim had a security camera installed in the apartment. Very good photo of the thief.

"the suspect entered an apartment building on East 2nd Street through the apartment's front door." Well, which is it: entered the building through an apartment?? OR entered an apartment through an unlocked apartment door?? OR something else??

Agree that this is a fairly non-informative NYPD release.

2nd and Avenue A on the 1st floor. The suspect used a crow bar to break into the apartment door while the victim was home. Neighbors, please be careful and make sure use additional precaution.

Jan. 3 @11:15PM: Thank you for those specifics. And yes, please, people, take extra precautions.

My own apartment door still has a FOX police lock bar on it to prevent it being opened by a crowbar, and I think people should inform themselves about these kinds of protections.
