    Police are looking for a burglar with an apparent broken foot who was caught inside a Fort Greene home last month. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.

    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.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS or at nypdcrimestoppers.com.
