Captain Manson, 104th Precinct, just called to confirm that there was a burglary at 70 #s on 52nd Avenue as I reported to you yesterday. For some reason it wasn't reported until today, 3/3.
Now for more bad news:
This afternoon, at approximately 2:30 pm, a female Asian resident who lives on first floor in a two-family house at 72 #s on Calamus Avenue heard loud noises. At first she thought it was the person who lives upstairs, but decided to open the door and look anyway. When she opened her door she saw a dark-skinned male Asian walking down the stairs. She asked him what his was doing. He just walked past her and out the door.
Still curious, she looked out her window and saw him walk up the block. A minute later he returned and got into a yellow cab (we believe as a passenger) and drove away.
She then realized that HER door was tampered with! When she went to the upstairs apartment it was ransacked!!
At this point, the 104th is still looking into all this activity and it isn't known whether or not this individual is involved in one or more incidents in our area.
Please don't let your guard down for a minute and call 911 for anything suspicious.
I'm sure we'll hear more at tonight's meeting - the report is still being typed up. Captain Manson said he will introduce Captain Brown, the new Executive Officer who replaced Captain Travaglia.
