"The 68th Precinct has done it again. I commend our Captain, our

Detectives and our Police Officers who have tonight, arrested an

individual wanted in connection with the recent home invasions in

Dyker Heights.


I have been in constant contact with the 68th Precinct and have been

assured throughout their investigation that they were taking this

string of robberies very seriously and were looking to put an end to

this as quickly as possible.


We remain a safe community, with crime down 13% this year, and we

continue to appreciate and respect the law enforcement work of the men
