BRONX - A shower cap wearing burglar used a hammer to break into the lobby of an apartment building to get to the tenants’ mailboxes, the NYPD said.

At around 1 am on October 6, a woman wearing a shower cap was caught on surveillance video trying to break into the vestibule of 1425 Noble Avenue.

Cops said the woman used the hammer to break the glass door and gain access to the vestibule. She then tried to break into a mailbox for the tenants.

It is unclear if the vandal made off with any items.

The suspect is described as a woman with a dark complexion who is between the ages of 25 and 30. She is 5 foot 2 and 190 pounds with a heavy build. She was last seen wearing a white t-shirt featuring checkered design on the front, red skirt, white sandals, and a shower cap.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
