Burglary attempted for second time in two weeks on Milbank Ave.

An attempted burglary on Milbank Avenue that took place around noon Monday is the second incident of its nature that has taken place in the neighborhood over the last two weeks, according to police.

Police said a suspect described as a white male with a scruffy beard who spoke with an unknown accent was observed in the common area of a multi-family dwelling on Milbank Avenue Monday afternoon.

At that time, a neighbor reportedly heard banging in the hallway of the building and came out to see what the commotion was. The witness found the suspect attempting to pry open the door of his neighbor’s apartment, which was unoccupied at the time.

The suspect subsequently pretended to be in the building to visit someone, whose name was contrived, then fled on foot while the witness was contacting police. Officers flooded the area but were unable to locate the suspect.

Additionally, a Stamford K-9 unit assisted police and tracked the suspect in a southerly direction but ultimately lost the scent in the area of the Greenwich train station.

This attempt would have been the second burglary at the same multi-family building in the last month. The previous burglary was reported on Nov. 20, also in the middle of the day.

If anyone has any information regarding either incident, contact the Greenwich police tip line at 203-622-3333.
