NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Bronxville residents are on edge following three burglaries in three weeks in the upscale Westchester County village.

In the latest incident early Thursday morning on Homesdale Road, one of the home’s owners was asleep in front of the TV when the burglars entered through an unlocked back door, police said. The man’s wife and a child were asleep upstairs. They did not wake up during the burglary.

“Some small things were stolen,” the homeowner told 1010 WINS’ Al Jones.  “I was on the first floor of the house when it happened, I noticed it this morning. So no one was hurt, nothing happened.”

The thieves got away with cash, a laptop and a cellphone, Jones reported.

Bronxville police Chief Christopher Satriale told CBS2’s Lou Young he thinks it was the burglary crew’s second attempt of the night. An alarm was triggered at a nearby home, WCBS 880’s Sean Adams reported.

“We think in the same time they were in the area likely hitting the other home, and entry to that home was made via an unlocked first-floor door as well,” Satriale said. “Stolen from within inside (the Homesdale Road home) was the laptop, the cellphone and some United States currency.”

Police have asked residents with surveillance cameras who live nearby on Homesdale Road, Sunnybrae Place, Sturgis Road and Locust Lane to contact them.

It’s the third burglary for Bronxville in the past three weeks — the second in a row in which the residents were at home at the time.

On Saturday, another Bronxville couple woke up to find two intruders wearing masks and gloves in their bedroom. The burglars had apparently climbed through a second-floor window Saturday while their home alarm was off.

“They woke me up with a flashlight in the face. (They said), ‘Get out of bed! Get up! Get down on the floor!’” George Shively told CBS2. When he didn’t get down on the floor, one of the burglars struck him with a flashlight.

Neighbors, meanwhile, are rushing to get alarm systems installed or upgraded.

“You’re scared for the kids. You’re scared for your own safety,” said Bronxville homeowner Sara Kenny. “These robbers can take anything they want. I just don’t want my kids being hurt.”

Police are urging Bronxville residents to lock and alarm their homes, even when occupied, and secure their valuables.

Cops believe the burglars are moving through backyards, spotting items and then making their entry through unlocked doors. Police have not linked the most recent home invasion to Saturday’s.

They, do, however, believe Saturday’s burglary is connected to an earlier nearby heist on Governor’s Road.

“The method of entry, the point of entry, the time frame, the property stolen is different than Summit and Governor’s so I’m leaning towards a different group of people being responsible for this crime,” Satriale said.

Police are “doubling our efforts, doubling our patrols, holding over shifts, and our investigators are working around the clock,” Satriale said.
