One Suspect Caught in Boro Park Home Invasion Robbery From Last Week

This was a shocking story to hear about. Two men broke into a chaseedish couples home in Boro Park tied them up and robbed their home. It feels as though crime is rising everywhere in Brooklyn. Well, this morning police announced that they do have one of the suspects in custody.

I really think this is going to turn out to be an inside job. Maybe a disgruntled maid or worker. There is no way they would have randomly picked a house that had a safe in it with $200,000 dollars in cash and jewelry. I mean I know there are some wealthy people who live in Boro Park but do they really keep $200,000 cash just laying around? This particular person had the money because he was going to buy a house the following day. (Why didn’t the guy just have bank checks?)

Here is the full story, it’s pretty interesting. Especially the part about the nosy neighbors thankfully taking down the licence plate of the car of the perps who were leaving the home. Finally a nosy Boro Park neighbor pays off. If not for her tip, they might not have caught this guy.

September 27, 2006 — Police yesterday were questioning a suspect believed to be one of two masked burglars who broke into the Brooklyn home of a wealthy couple, tied them up and cleaned them out of more than $200,000 in cash and jewels.

Cops were trying to determine if the burglars may have known that real-estate investor Wolf Sicherman, 55, and wife Sarah kept money in a safe in the third-floor bedroom of their Borough Park home.

On Monday night the safe was stuffed with cash because Sicherman was going to purchase a building the following day, police sources said.

The masked duo, clad in black jumpsuits and armed with boxcutters, entered through a rear window and cut the electricity.

“They were working with small flashlights,” said a neighbor and friend of the victims, Yossi Frideman.

Police sources said the burglars encountered Sicherman, owner of nearby Sicherman Management Corp., on the stairwell and ordered him to open the safe.

He was so nervous he couldn’t remember the combination, so his wife opened the safe. The couple were then tied with duct tape to a chair in the living room.

Before fleeing, the robbers “thanked the wife for being so nice,” said a police source.

A woman chatting with a neighbor on the sidewalk said, “I saw two hooded guys coming out of the house getting into a white car.”

Her friend became suspicious and wrote down the license plate of the getaway SUV and called the local neighborhood watch group.

A few minutes later, “He [Sicherman] got himself free. She [Sarah] was shaking like a fish,” said the witness.

* Thugs forced their way into the home of a Long Island mom alone with her disabled son, and tied her up while they tore through the house looking for cash, the victim said yesterday.

Rosa Diaz, 54, of Stratford Drive in Westbury, said two tall Hispanic men wearing khaki pants and white shirts knocked on her door and asked for her daughter’s husband, who wasn’t home. Then they demanded a glass of water and followed her inside.

“They took out a gun, then tied me with tape on my arms and legs,” she said. “I was afraid they were going to kill me because I could see them good.”

Communicating with each other by walkie-talkie, the men banged around upstairs and in the basement, Diaz said.

They made off with cash, jewelry and liquor, according to Nassau County police.” (link)
