An Elmont teen has been charged with burglarizing a home Wednesday while a resident was sleeping inside, Nassau police said.
Police said Jarrell Green, 17, entered an Elmont home on Freeman Avenue by cutting the screen of a back kitchen window and letting himself in about 11:30 a.m. Green made his way upstairs to a second-floor bedroom, police said, where a 22-year-old woman was asleep.
The woman heard noise in the bedroom and opened her eyes and saw Green there, police said, trying to open a suitcase that was on the floor. Police said Green stood up, locked eyes with the woman and fled the house in an unknown direction with no proceeds from the burglary.
No one was hurt, police said.
Fourth Precinct officers found Green on Thursday in front of his home at 43 Goshen St. and arrested him. Green was charged with second-degree burglary, and is scheduled to be arraigned Friday in First District Court in Hempstead.
Court records show Green was arrested in June and charged with third-degree burglary, a D felony, following an incident that occurred in May. Records show he was released to probation without bail following that charge.
