Police say a very persistent thief is trying to steal an SUV in the Bronx—and has been caught on video twice.

According to the NYPD, on Sunday, May 17th, at about 9:42 p.m., an unknown male entered 3922 Ely Avenue through the front door, then took the keys to a 2015 Lexus. The suspect drove off, but the vehicle was recovered the next day. Then, on Tuesday, May 18th, the suspect returned and tried to take the SUV again, but police say he "fled the scene after a neighbor confronted him.

The car's owner admitted she left her door unlocked, but now she's keeping it locked. Her neighbor described his exchange to CBS2: "I said ‘Do you need help with something?' He took off down the block and I started chasing him... He’s very brazen, very brazen. That makes you think what else would he do?"

The suspect is described as being 16-18 years old, 120-140 pounds and wearing a light colored shirt, dark colored jeans and black sneakers.
