APPREHENDED: Father Of Wanted Flatbush Burglar Tips Off Cops To His Location

A suspect who was wanted for a widely-publicized burglary was arrested early Wednesday morning.

Sources tell YWN that a man walked into the NYPD’s 63 Precinct and identified himself as the father of a man wanted for burglarizing a Jewish home last Friday while they were sleeping.

The father was “worried for his son’s life” and took the bold action of tipping off police on his whereabouts.

Police staked out multiple addresses where the man would possibly be staying, and sure enough the suspect was seen entering one of the locations on Ocean Avenue in Midwood. He was taken into custody by the NYPD’s 70 Precinct Anti-Crime officers.

Detectives are looking into the possibility of connecting the suspect to additional burglaries in the area.

As YWN previously reported, the suspect was captured on video rummaging through a Frum family’s Flatbush home, all while the family slept upstairs.
