Suspect sought in Kings Point home invasion

February 8, 2012 2:42:32 PM PST
A neighborhood on Long Island, already on edge because of a string of burglaries, is now the scene of another home invasion.

This time, a man woke up to a burglar trying to open his bedroom door.

Authorities say that around 7 p.m. Tuesday, a man broke into a home Rogers Road in King's Point through a back door. He apparently tried to open the 82-year-old resident's bedroom door and was seen rummaging through the victim's desk before fleeing the scene.

Investigators do not believe this incident is related to a string of burglaries in King's Point and Great Neck that began in November of 2010 and went unsolved. In one of those cases, a 15-year-old girl was attacked in her bedroom.

A surveillance image was released in one of those previous incidents (seen above), but that suspect was never caught.

Police are investigating if the latest incident in King's Point is connected to the burglary spree.
