The unknown man broke into the Bronx, New York City, apartment through a fire escape, New York police told local media. The video shows him scavenging through the room as a 2-month-old baby sleeps in a crib, WNBC-TV reported.
The man left the room when he heard the baby’s father coming, police said. The baby was unharmed.
