QUEENS, New York — Chilling video captured by a New York family’s nanny camera shows a burglar crawling on their bedroom floor with a knife in his mouth.

The video shows the burglar breaking into the Queens family’s home in the early hours of Nov. 25, Daily Mail reports.

He was in the home for nearly 40 minutes, making his way through each room before ending up in the bedroom, where the parents were sleeping with their children.

Video shows the man crawling on his hands and knees through the bedroom with a knife in his teeth.
