Child’s screams scare off cowardly Bronx home invaders


Seven-year-old girl's screams frighten off wanna-be home invaders in the Bronx.

A terrified, screaming little girl scared the bejeezus out of five men who forced their way into her Bronx home and pulled a gun on her and her mother, police said Friday.

The five creeps busted through the front door of the apartment on East Burnside and Creston avenues in Morris Heights at 2:20 a.m. on June 1, cops said.

The 28-year-old woman and her 7-year-old daughter were sleeping when the invaders came in and pointed a gun at them, authorities said.

When the girl started screaming, the suspects panicked and ran off, cops said.

Police released pictures and videos of the men on Friday.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. Spanish speakers should call (888) 577-4782. All calls will be kept confidential.
