Video footage released by the New York Police Department shows a burglar crawling into a family’s bedroom while a couple and their three children are asleep.
Daily Mail reports that the burglar was caught by the family’s nanny cam breaking into the Queens, New York, home on Nov. 25 at 2:30 a.m., wearing a beanie and a sweater, with a knife in his mouth.
The man moves from room to room searching for things to steal from the family before he eventually enters the family’s bedroom. He continues to search for items even though the family is sleeping just feet away from him.
At the end of the video, the intruder finds a smartphone on the dresser and takes it. The sound of the phone being grabbed off the dresser wakes the father up, which is when burglar flees. He remains at large.
NYPD released the video in an attempt to identify the burglar. Police have described the man as 6 feet 2 inches and approximately 200 pounds. He was wearing all black clothing and a black beanie with the word “diamond” on it in red and white lettering.
