“The AMERICANS” star KERI RUSSELL's home was invaded by two alleged perps in the dead of night.
NYPD said Keri, 37, was robbed by a father-and-son burglary team that broke into her brownstone in Brooklyn while she slept early Wednesday morning.
Keri who stars as a sleeper Soviet-era spy in FX TV series “The Americans” was fast asleep on the basement level of her townhouse about 3:40 a.m. when the two thieves entered through an open, first-floor window.
When she awoke she discovered several items missing including a Filson bag, a Macbook Air, a necklace and earrings, law enforcement sources told The New York Post.
Keri, who first found fame winning a Golden Globe for the TV hit “Felicity,” promptly called 911 reporting the home invasion and theft.
The perps, which initially eluded capture, then broke into another home in the area.
Police from the 84th Precient responded to the 2nd break-in and after canvassing the area arrested two suspects in the robberies -- Stephan Swindell, 19, and his dad, Ronald Swindell, 50.
