Knife-wielding man creeps around sleeping man's Brooklyn home

BOROUGH PARK, Brooklyn (WABC) -- A knife-wielding man was caught on camera creeping around inside a Brooklyn man's home over the weekend.

It happened near Fort Hamilton Parkway and 54th Street in Borough Park as the 65-year-old victim slept around 1 a.m. Saturday.

Police say the man entered the home through an unlocked back door.

When the victim heard a noise, he got up and slammed his bedroom door. The sound prompted the intruder to flee empty-handed.
