81st Precinct police are seeking the public's help in identifying and arresting the second of two bandits caught burglarizing a residence on Chancey Street between Patchen Ave and Malcolm X Blvd.
At around 2:25pm on Wednesday, September 6, police received a 911 call of a burglary taking place at 181 Chauncey Street. A witness gave a description of two unknown men seen entering the rear window of a fourth floor apartment.
Upon arrival, police saw the two men attempting to flee down the fire escape. When they robbers spotted the officers, they jumped over the fence and began running through the yards of the buildings facing Bainbridge Street, according to police.
Police found one suspect hiding in the bushes near the rear of 242 Bainbridge Street. He has been identified as Noble Maxwell and was arrested.
The officers then called in aviation to assist in locating the second suspect. Further investigation and video footage showed the second bandit running through a yard into 110 Chauncey Street.
