Cops: Syosset Man Discovers Intruder in Bathroom

A Syosset man awoke early Tuesday morning to use the bathroom, only to find a burglar ruffling through his wife's purse, police said.

According to cops, the 72-year-old male woke up at 3:30 a.m. to use the facilities, only to discover the male, described as either white or light-skinned Hispanic, holding his wife's pocketbook.

The suspect fled the scene via the back door with an unknown amount of money. No injuries were reported. The suspect is described as 6 feet tall, 20-30 years old, and he was wearing a knit cap and dark pants.

Detectives request anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.

To bad he didn't have a gun in his hand. He could have shot this animal in the face.

See, having prostate problems is not as bad as they make it out on those late night infomercials. In fact, it might have saved this elderly man from a serial intruder like the "Zoidiac".
