Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Police in New York said officers responding to a report of a possible burglary arrived at the home to find a hawk had crashed through a window.

The New York Police Department said officers responded to a Queens home about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday after a woman reported arriving home to find a window had been broken by a suspected burglar.


Police tweeted a photo of an officer holding the suspect: a red-tailed hawk that apparently crashed into the window.

"After responding to a call of a possible burglar hawk-eyed @NYPD112Pct cops took our feathered friend into custody. Hawk was safely removed by animal handlers and will be well taken care of," the tweet read.

The NYPD said the hawk was taken to Wild Life Rescue & Rehab of Long Island, where it is expected to make a full recovery from its injuries.
