The NYPD is asking for the public’s assistance in finding a man wanted for a recent burglary pattern in the area surrounding Flushing’s Bowne Park dating back to June.
Police released on Thursday morning a surveillance camera image of the suspect, described as a black male wearing a white bucket hat and a gray jogging suit while carrying a backpack.
The first incident occurred between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on June 16, when the crook entered the backyard of a home on 158th Street and was observed trying to enter through a window. Police said he fled after he was unable to get inside.
His second burglary attempt also failed, police said, when he unsuccessfully tried to enter through a window of a 154th Street home on June 25 between 3 and 10 p.m.
Police said the burglar finally succeeded on July 1, when he broke into a home on 28th Street between 1:30 and 4 p.m. and removed an undetermined amount of property.
Then, on July 2 between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m., authorities said, the bandit broke through a rear window of a home on 25th Avenue and stole two gold rings and a pair of earrings.
All of the incidents took place within the confines of the 109th Precinct.
Anyone with information regarding the burglary pattern or the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages will be kept confidential.
