Neighborhoods on Alert After Recent Break-ins



    Nassau County Police are on the hunt for a brazen, bedroom intruder.  He's struck three times in about two hours early Wednesday morning.

    Nazanin Amirian, a mother of three, is afraid he may strike again in her ritzy Kings Point, Long Island neighborhood.

    "I have children, so it's vey scary," she said.

    Detectives told Amirian the bandit struck both houses on either side of her home, but spared her of a serious scare in the middle of the night.  She said her family is on high alert.

    "We're being vigilant and we'll be on the look out for people wandering around and will call the police," said Amirian.

    Detectives say a man broke into the first home on Lighthouse Road to the right of the Amirians.

    At 2:50 am, the owners of the house were awakened by their 5 year old daughter who screamed after seeing the intruder who entered the place through a side window.

    At 3:15, the bandit hit a house on the left side of the family's house, waking a 63 year old woman.  He came through the back door.

    At 4:43, the burglar made his way around to a house in Great Neck, where he placed a kitchen knife at a victim's throat after entering her bedroom on the second floor of her Georgian Lane home.  The victim was able to grab the knife away and chase after the suspect.

    Nassau County Police are investigating a separate incident also in Great Neck.  A 15 year old woke up to find a home intruder in her bedroom on Sunday.

    Anyone with information about these burglaries is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.  All calls will remain anonymous.
