Robber Steals Console from Boy’s Bedroom While He Sleeps

File this one under extra creepy – we're talking almost as creepy as anything involving "Jerry Sandusky and young boys creepy." According to a Michigan Live report, a Flint, Michigan grandfather discovered that someone had broken into his grandson's bedroom at 1:00 AM on July 3 to steal his video game console while the boy was asleep. The report does not divulge the boy's age.

The grandfather said that he was awakened by a loud noise coming from his grandson's bedroom at around 1:00 AM. Concerned, he yelled out for him to make sure he was okay. At first he thought his grandson was awake and had dropped something. When he went to his room he found that someone had broken in through a window in the room and had taken an Xbox 360 with Kinect, along with some games. Police valued all the stuff stolen at $1,340.

Police have no witnesses to the crime and have yet to make an arrest.

No doubt the family is just thankful that no one was hurt and that some other kind of miscreant who was more prone to violence or other despicable behavior hadn't broken in and done harm to them.
