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.

    For the first time in years, more than 1 million New Yorkers are smoking, marking a disturbing rise of tobacco use in the city that pioneered a number of anti-smoking initiatives that were emulated nationally.  Sixteen percent of adult New Yorkers smoked in 2013, up from 14 percent in 2010, which was the city's lowest recorded rate, according to the findings released by New York City's Department of Health.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
