Police are hunting for a would-be burglar who attempted to break into two Bedford Avenue homes in Sheepshead Bay on March 23.
The suspect first tried to enter a house near Avenue V through a rear-window at approximately 9:30 p.m., but fled when the 54-year-old female homeowner caught a glimpse of the clumsy cat burglar, according to cops.
About 30 minutes later, the perp, who police say donned a mask and dark clothing, tried to break into a different residence near Avenue V, but was busted by a 67-year-old man who was returning home at around 10 p.m., according to cops.
The unsuccessful burglar is described as a man, last seen wearing a face mask and all dark clothing.
Anyone with information in regards to the identity of the two men is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-8477. The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at www.nypdcr
