a Burglar In the Buff

Nude Awakening In Ridgewood Apt.

Apparently looking for something other than loot, a Ridgewood man wearing nothing but his birthday suit was collared by police on Sunday morning, Jan. 26, after he allegedly broke into a woman’s apartment, it was reported.

Law enforcement sources identified the suspect as 30-year-old Javier Lopez-Sanchez, who remains in custody on $75,000 bond as of press time Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 29.

The victim was not physically harmed in the incident, it was noted.

Reportedly, the break-in occurred between 6:30 and 6:40 a.m. Sunday morning at an apartment on Madison Street off Fresh Pond Road.

According to the criminal complaint provided by the Queens District Attorney’s office, the female resident was sleeping in her bedroom when she awoke to find Lopez- Sanchez standing over her bed.

Reportedly, the suspect was not wearing any clothing at the time.

In statements made to the victim, police said, Lopez-Sanchez allegedly claimed he was in the wrong apartment and that he had been drinking.

The victim reportedly went to the entrance to her residence and discovered that the chain lock on the door had been broken.

A screwdriver was found nearby, law enforcement sources said.

Members of the 104th Precinct responded to the location after receiving a 911 call about the incident.

During questioning, as noted in the criminal complaint, Lopez- Sanchez allegedly stated he used the screwdriver to break the apartment, then went to the bedroom, removed his clothes and hoped to have sex with the victim.

Lopez-Sanchez was taken into custody by P.O. Dawn Grefe of the 104th Precinct and booked on charges of second-degree burglary, criminal trespass, possession of burglar’s tools and sexually motivated felony.

According to court records, he appeared in Queens Criminal Court on Monday, Jan. 28, before Judge Donna M. Golia for arraignment on the charges. He is scheduled to return to court on Feb. 10.
