Actress Ellen Barkin scared off a would-be robber after confronting him inside her Greenwich Village home Wednesday, sources told The Post.
Barkin, 63, told police the man had entered her home on W. 12th Street, between 6th and 7th avenues, just before 7 a.m. and fled through a balcony door from a third-floor bedroom when she caught him inside, sources said.
He bolted without taking any property. She wasn’t injured.
Barkin, who starred in the 1989 crime drama “Sea of Love” with Al Pacino, tweeted about being less-than-impressed with the police response.
“@NYPDByrne … only because u have the full name of the father of my children…the first responders were great, here in 70secs! still waiting for the detectives… it’s only been 4 hours,” she wrote two hours after the home invasion.
The Bronx-born Barkin then followed up a few minutes later, “.@NYPDByrne @NYPDONeill @NYPDDetectives Did I just hear this right? No detectives here, at all? My heart breaks for another day that will live in infamy but crime is still going on…in my house. @NYPDDetectives Robert Boyce.”
