Authorities say the burglar climbed through a bathroom window to enter a residence near 257th Street and 82nd Avenue in Glen Oaks — within the confines of the 105th Precinct — at approximately 10:20 a.m. on May 3. The bathroom was located at the rear of the residence.

Authorities on May 17 released video of the suspect running away from the scene.
