Pittsburgh Police are warning Brookline residents to lock their doors after a string of nighttime burglaries in the area.
Investigators said there have been eight burglaries in Brookline since the middle of August.
Officers said in at least five of the burglaries, the victims were sleeping inside when the thieves broke in.
Melvin Kunz said a burglar broke into his home, just feet from where his wife was sleeping, and stole cash, jewelry and a DVD player.
"When you're older, it bothers you more so than when you're younger I guess. One thing I'm glad that they didn't do any stabbing or shooting or any of that, you know," Kunz said.
Kunz said he has since installed an alarm system.
Police said all of the burglaries are connected.
