Police in the City of Binghamton are again urging residents to lock their doors and windows following three reported incidents within minutes of each other July 9.

Officials say at 5 a.m. a resident on Matthews Street woke up to find three people, dressed in black, armed with a crow bar and baseball bat in his bedroom.

21 minutes later, suspects matching the same description were reported going through back yards on Kendall Avenue and at 6 a.m., a resident on Jutland Road was awakened by suspects opening the door to his bedroom.

In that incident, the suspects fled with some items stolen from the home.

Police Chief Joseph Zikuski says on Matthews Street, the door to the home was unlocked while on Jutland Road, entry was made through an unlocked first floor window.

Anyone seeing anything suspicious in their neighborhood should contact authorities immediately.
