WEST HEMPSTEAD, NY (CBSNewYork) – Imagine hearing your home being ransacked. You are scared, hiding in the closet, waiting for police to arrive.

WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall On The Story

That is what authorities said happened to a 36-year-old woman in West Hempstead, Long Island.

Nassau County police officer Jean DeLuca said after two men knocked on the woman’s front door and she would not let them in, the men went around to the back door and broke in.

“She heard a loud banging in her rear door. So, she ran upstairs to her bedroom and hid in the closet while on the phone with a family member who called police. As she hid in the closet, she heard the defendants ransacking her room,” DeLuca told WCBS 880 reporter Sophia Hall.

Police arrived a short time later. The men had already left the house, but they were found hiding in a nearby shed.

The woman was not injured and her jewelry that was taken was recovered.

Arrested were Shakey Foster-Bey, 24; Johan M. Antney, 21; and Carl S. Brown, 23.

    Michael Bloomberg is personally responsible for deliberately and ILLEGALLY exporting New York City’s crime to the suburbs. Everybody knows that REAL Americans live in suburbs, and therefore, by law, CRIME BELONGS IN CITIES. New York City owes us big time for imposing its crime on us.

    She is alive. In this case, worked out well. If she could have escaped unseen and left the house, that would be safer. Always good in a situation like that to silence your cell phone. No ring tone or vibration!
