Property stolen while residents sleep

A series of Tuesday morning burglaries spooked several bleary-eyed residents, police said.

The first incident happened some time between midnight and 8:30 a.m. in the unit block of Dakota Street, cops said.

Someone entered the dwelling of a 30-year-old woman while she was sleeping. When she woke up, she noticed her cell phone and some baby clothes were missing, police said.

According to police, there was no point of entry and all the doors were locked.

Two more robberies happened just an hour later, cops said.

Around 9:30 a.m., two women roommates were in their respective rooms in their apartment in the 600 block of Central Avenue when one of the women saw her door open and the arm of a “white male,” police said.

The woman screamed and the suspect fled — with a laptop computer.

Then, some time between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. in the 1100 block of Market Street, a 25-year-old man and 21-year-old woman were robbed of their belongings, police said.

After the man left the apartment while the woman was sleeping, an unknown suspect pried open the front door and stole a cell phone, camera, laptop and accessories, cops said.

No arrests have been made.
