The above suspect is one of two perpetrators wanted for an attempted burglary in Flushing

Cops are looking for two suspects who tried breaking into a Flushing home in broad daylight on Thursday morning.

On April 19 at around 11:38 a.m., an unidentified suspect dressed in construction attire rang the doorbell of a home in the Auburndale section of the neighborhood at 189th Street and Station Road, according to law enforcement sources.

Law enforcement sources said the homeowner, who was at home at the time, ignored the doorbell and witnessed the suspect and a second perpetrator enter his backyard on a surveillance camera.

One of the would-be burglars then proceeded to climb onto an awning and attempted to gain access through an upstairs window, police said. A second perpetrator then broke through a lower-level window.

Authorities said the homeowner then turned on a light inside, causing the perpetrators to flee the scene in a grey minivan in an unknown direction.

Police said the first suspect was last seen wearing construction attire; officers did not provide a description for the second individual.

The incident was reported to the 111th Precinct. There have been no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.
