GREAT NECK, N.Y. (WPIX)—Nassau County residents reported three new home break-ins Wednesday that strongly resemble a home invasion on Saturday when a man sneaked into the room of an area fifteen-year-old.
All three break-ins happened during the early morning hours of Wednesday in Kings Point and Great Neck.
According to police, the suspect crawled through a bathroom window on Lighthouse Road in Kings Point just before 3 a.m. and entered a bedroom where two girls, ages 1 and 5, were sleeping.
The 5-year-old girl woke up and startled the man who ran out of the room and reportedly crawled back out of the bathroom window.
The suspect in that break-in was described as a Hispanic male, 25-30, 5'10", 200 lbs, black hair and a dark complexion.
An hour later, a 63-year-old woman called police after a man broke through her glass back door and then fled after seeing her.
Then, at roughly 4:43 a.m., a 61-year-old woman valiantly fought off a man who broke into her Great Neck home, entered her room and held a knife to her throat. The woman managed to take the knife from her attacker, but suffered a small cut on her left hand in the process.
An investigation is ongoing.
Detectives request anyone with information about these break ins to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
