A 79-year-old woman got a shock early Tuesday morning after being awoken by the sound of footsteps in her Sea Cliff home.
Around 12:18 a.m., the woman entered her kitchen to find two men in hooded sweatshirts. She screamed and the men fled through the back door.
Police recovered a pocketbook and some power tools belonging to the woman outside her home. Further investigation determined entry was made through basement doors and proceeds included a wallet containing an undetermined amount of U.S. currency and a computer attachment. No injuries were reported and there is no further description of the subjects.
Detectives request anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
