Thieves have struck Ditmas Park once again — this time hitting a bustling cafe.
The NYPD is currently searching for a man caught on a surveillance camera breaking into Cortelyou Road’s Connecticut Muffin on Monday night — the latest in a string of crimes that has put neighborhood residents on edge.
Police say the thief forced his way into the cafe near E. 11th Street at 2 am and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The muffin job is the latest in a string of crimes to occur in the area in recent weeks — four of which took place just a half-block away on Westminster Road.
Embattled residents say they have never seen so many crimes in the area.
“I’ve been here 30 years and I’ve never seen so many robberies,” said resident Ashime Bux, who lives on the block.
Anyone with information regarding this break-in is urged to contact NYPD CrimeStoppers at (800) 577-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.
