A wicked trio of brazen burglars swiped $200 bucks from an 87-year-old woman’s 20th Avenue apartment on Jan. 11 — while she was home — after letting themselves in and acting like visiting relatives.
The victim told police that she was inside her home between 65th and 66th streets at 7 pm when suddenly the burglars, a man, woman, and child, entered her apartment through the unlocked front door.
Once inside, the kid immediately sat down and watched television, while the man and woman approached the confused woman, telling her that they knew her and were visiting, cops said.
The woman then continued to distract the victim, while her male accomplice went into bedroom, only to emerge shouting, “We need to go, we’re late,” according to police.
The group then left, leaving the poor, old lady to discover she’d been swindled out of $200, cops said.
