Police are looking for a suspect who robbed a Manhattan apartment on West 57th Street yesterday afternoon—and apparently used the balcony to get in!
According to the NY Post, "The death-defying thief somehow made his way onto a fifth-floor balcony of the building on West 57th Street near Ninth Avenue at about 5 p.m., Saturday, and let himself in, police said." He demanded money from the two tenants, two women in their 70s. The Post adds, "Authorities said the plucky 78-year-old tried to fight off the home invader, but the creep punched and kicked her before fleeing with about $300."
The police are investigating the incident, including how the burglar got into the building, which has 10 floors.
