A doorman stopped a would-be burglar before he could steal from the residents of a West 79th Street apartment building, between Columbus and Amsterdam avenues. On Aug. 20 at 1:30 a.m., a building worker told the doorman that someone was in the basement of the building. The doorman checked the monitor to confirm. Cops said that the burglar, 43-year-old Angel Velez, tried to escape, but the doorman caught him. Velez had a screwdriver in his front pocket and a backpack containing a pair of black gloves, flashlight and butter knife, according to reports.
