A burglar with an apparent broken foot managed to get into a Brooklyn home, then run away when the resident returned to the apartment, police said.
The man, who had a cast on his right foot, somehow got into the basement apartment in Fort Greene through an open window the morning of Friday, May 24, according to police.
The 24-year-old resident came home, startling the burglar, who quickly escaped through the window where he broke in, police said.
There were no reported injuries and the suspect left empty-handed.
Surveillance video shows the suspect with a cast on his right foot and walking with a cane.
