NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City police say thieves broke into the Brooklyn home of actress Keri Russell and stole a laptop, jewelry and purse.

The 37-year-old star of the FX show "The Americans" was asleep when she heard footsteps and voices at about 3 a.m. Wednesday.

Police say she went upstairs to find the window and front door open and her belongings missing.

She called 911, but didn't see the intruders. It's unclear if anyone else was home.

Soon after, a 70-year-old neighbor awoke to find a burglar inside and a lookout and called 911 with a description.

Police canvassed the area and arrested a father and son. Some of the stolen property was recovered.

Police say the two are being investigated as possible suspects in the burglary at Russell's home.

    Brooklyn's final pitch to hold the 2016 Democratic national convention was centered on New York City's robust mass transit system -- and a pledge to learn "from the mistakes" from the last time the city hosted a presidential convention. The Republicans gathered in New York in 2004 to re-nominate President George W. Bush, choosing to meet in deep-blue Manhattan less than three years after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
