At approximately 3:24 a.m. on Wednesday March 22, police were dispatched to an Anderson Road home when the resident reported that an unknown male had entered his home while he was sleeping.

According to police, the front door of the residence was unlocked and the suspect walked in and left without taking or disturbing anything or anyone. Police eventually tracked down the suspect, a 52-year-old man from Brooklyn, walking on Cross River Road in Katonah.

Police said that the man was taken back to the Anderson Road address, where he was positively identified as the person that had entered the residence, but the family told officers they did not want him arrested.

The man had no identification, and after being fingerprinted at the police station, his prints matched no records, police noted. A canvas of the area around Anderson Road determined that he had not entered other local residences or been seen by neighbors. Ultimately, the man was taken to Northern Westchester Hospital for treatment and evaluation after complaining about pain in his legs.
