GREEN TREE (KDKA) – Police are asking for the public’s help to identify a man accused of breaking into a home in Green Tree.

According to police, the incident happened in the 1100 block of Glencoe Avenue.

The suspect allegedly knocked on the door to find out if anyone was home and then forced open a sliding door in the rear of the home and stole cash and jewelry.

Police believe an attempted break-in at a nearby home may be related.

A nearby resident, Sue Mangini, says she was unaware of that break-in, but about four weeks prior she, too, was a victim.

“There was cash taken from the visor of my car in the driveway ,and I left my purse in my house with the keys in it, so the car was locked and they got away with quite a bit of cash,” she said.

Green Tree police recommend everyone in the borough keep their doors locked, and if you see anything suspicious, to call them.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Green Tree police at (412)-921-8624, or call 911.
