Keri Russell in The Americans
“The break-in did happen,” the actress’s rep tells PEOPLE. “Everyone is fine, and Keri sends her thanks to the police.”
A laptop, jewelry said to be earrings and a purse were taken around 3 a.m. Wednesday, reports the Associated Press. Although asleep at the time, Russell, 37, awoke to hear footsteps and voices in the apartment, then she called 911.
While Russell never saw the intruders, police said afterwards that she found a window and front door open and her items missing.
Nearby, a 70-year-old neighbor awoke to find a burglar inside and called 911 with a description, according to AP. After canvassing the area, police found and arrested a father and son, as well as recovered some of Russell’s stolen property.
The men are now being investigated as possible suspects in the case.
Speaking about the police, the former Felicity star told the New York Post from the set of her current FX show The Americans on Wednesday afternoon: “They’re bringing my stuff back right now. When does that ever happen?”
She added, “The New York City cops were awesome! Everyone is fine. Thank you for your concern.”
