A serial burglar who sneaks into apartments through back windows has robbed at least three more homes, police said Sunday.
The latest burglaries happened within about 12 blocks in the Gravesend and Bath Beach neighborhoods between January and April, the NYPD said.
In all three cases, the burglar forced open a window in the back of the home, police said. One time, the thief took jewelry, high-end purses and $8,000 cash.
The same burglar is suspected in nine other robberies. He typically enters through a rear window, sometimes tearing a screen or using a crowbar, or breaking through a rear door.
He often takes jewelry and cash, police said.
The burglar is described as about 5 feet tall and 170 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
