CROTONA PARK, The Bronx — Two men are wanted for breaking into an apartment in Crotona Park and stealing multiple items, including a rabbit in a cage.

The two men went into the apartment, located in the vicinity of Crotona Park East and 174th Street, through an unlocked front door around 6 p.m. on Monday, July 27. The men took a rabbit in a cage, a metal bracelet and a passport.

"That's horrible," neighbor Eddie Nared told PIX11. "Just to go into anyone's apartment and take their pet, their cat, their dog, their rabbit, that's horrible," Nared added.

Street surveillance video caught them walking with the rabbit in the cage.

Neighbors say they are baffled.

"I am pretty sure that there were more valuable things in the apartment," Licelot Arias, another neighbor, said.

"She shouldn't have left her door open," Kathy Star, another neighbor said. Her sister, Victoria agreed, saying "she should be more careful because she has young children."

One man is described as being 5-feet 11-inches tall with braided long hair.

The second man was last seen wearing a light blue T-shirt and shorts, white sneakers and a blue baseball hat.
