It was a very scary moment for “The Americans” star Keri Russell early Wednesday morning (December 4), when she was awoken by the sound of someone in her Brooklyn home. Russell was home alone at the time, and went to investigate.
According to the New York Daily News, Russell heard the sounds at around 3 a.m. on the upper floor of her place, but by the time she went upstairs, they were gone along with some of her possessions. According to police, the burglars took a laptop computer, some jewelry and a Filson handbag.
Authorities later captured the culprits, an uncle-nephew team, after they broke into a second house in the area. They had the stolen goods on them when captured. Keri’s rep confirms that “everybody is fine” and that Russell is thankful to the police for their help.
