ROCHELLE PARK, NJ (Gray News) - A man attempting to burglar a New Jersey home fled when he woke the victims, but he didn’t make it far before accidentally getting into a police car instead of the Lyft he had ordered.
The sound of 28-year-old Nicholas Maziot trying to open a door woke a New Jersey couple Thursday around 10 p.m., The Hackensack Daily Voice reports.
The couple soon discovered Maziot, a homeless man who had climbed into their home through a second-story window. Police say the intruder then climbed back out the window and jumped from the roof to the ground.
As officers from several police departments responded, Maziot requested a ride away from the scene through the Lyft app.
