    Some details missing. Where was security in this high end building? Did he break in or enter? And this is Rittenhouse Square which is akin to Park Ave/Upper East side of NYC. Scary!

  2. Charmaine Hurst says:

    Hmmm.He had to know where or which apartment to hit. He may even know the person whom he stole from.
