A policewoman's gun and badge were stolen from her New York City home as she slept -- and the bandit apparently also made off with her car.

Angela Perry, 42, was stunned when fellow officers, responding to a report of a crime at her home, awakened her at 4 a.m.

"My son and I were asleep upstairs," she said. "I thought I was safe in my own home because of the work I do," she said later.

Neighbors said the 10-year veteran officer sobbed as she spoke about the break-in, The New York Post reported.

Her gun, badge and charcoal Toyota 4Runner were still missing Saturday.

A neighbor who rents the downstairs apartment called police after coming home at about 3 a.m. and finding the back door open.
