RIVERDALE, the Bronx — Police are looking for a man caught on video sneaking around a sleeping baby’s room in the Bronx, after gaining access through a fire escape window.

The unidentified man broke into the Riverdale apartment, located near Johnson Avenue and West 236th Street, through an unsecured fire escape window at around 8:10 p.m. Friday.

Once inside the room, the video shows the man briefly scouting the room as the 2-month-old baby slept in the crib. Police say the man took off when he heard the baby’s father in the living room.

Just minutes later, police say the same man forced his way into another unit in the same building, also breaking in through a fire escape window. Once he got inside, he took jewelry, a bike and backpack.

No one was harmed in either incidents.

The man was last seen wearing a dark colored knit hat, a gray hooded sweater, a dark colored coat and carried a dark colored backpack.

Submit tips to police by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or texting 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. Spanish-speaking callers are asked to dial 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
