"Salesmen" Exposed As Burglars

A Crown Heights homeowner warns that violent burglars seen on a video shared on social media recently tried to enter his home.

By COLlive reporter

A Crown Heights homeowner was shocked to see a familiar person on a video shared on social media meant to warn people about a ring of home burglars.

The frightening video shows a woman standing at the front door of a home, ringing the bell, and then speaking to the person who opens the door.

While the unsuspecting person in the home speaks to her, a man, who appears to be her accomplice, enters the home. He is seen on video assaulting the homeowner and then going inside. A few seconds later, a second male accomplice enters the home as well. The woman is seen standing outside and appears to be acting as a lookout.

No other information was available about the video, however a Crown Heights homeowner who received it via Whatsapp yesterday was shocked when he watched it.

The homeowner, who lives on New York Avenue near Eastern Pkwy, said he recognized the people in the video as having rung his bell approximately a month ago.

"Please warn the community," he asked. "I know that woman's face. These people came to my house several times at 8:00 - 8:30 at night in Crown Heights. They said they were offering free estimates for Anderson windows. At the time I thought it was very strange," he said.

"They came twice, first the man came, and then two days later this same girl came and the guy was standing in the background," the homeowner said.

Crown Heights residents should be careful when answering the door, always check to make sure you know who it is before opening it.

"It was definitely the same girl talking to me," he said. "It's very scary, after watching this video I couldn't sleep last night."

They came as salesmen for Anderson Windows
This is a real threat. They came to my house twice last week to make a sale on replacing my windows. The video should be sent to the police.

This is an old story. Almost a full month ago and as usual the cops are not doing a thing about it. Just eating donuts and waiting for Shmira or Shomrim to do the job for them.

Arm yourselves! You ride a bike with a helmet, you drive with a car with a seat belt, you live in predominantly black neighborhood WITH ARMS. It's that simple.

The Most Important Thing
Is to find out who is sending them to commit the crimes, and who is sending all the rest of them to commit the crimes. This is the ONLY WAY to really bring an end to it.
