On Monday between the hours of 1 and 1:30 p.m., a 9-1-1 call was made stating a suspicious man dressed in all black clothing was fleeing a home in the vicinity of 149th Street and 22nd Avenue in Whitestone.

Sources say the suspect attempted to break into a home using a ladder which was left at the back of the house. The owner was in the house at the time, yelled, and the perp took off, using the ladder to get back out.

The 109th Precinct responded with cars, K-9 and aviation units, but the suspect was not arrested.

The 109th Precinct Community Council advises that if you have a ladder in the back of your home lock it to a fence or keep it in the garage.
