Actress Keri Russell was asleep in her Brooklyn Heights brownstone early today when two men broke in, Page Six reports. Russell was on the basement level, and the suspects entered through an open first-floor window. Their voices woke her, and she called 911; they had taken a MacBook Air, jewelry, and a bag. The suspects got away but broke into another home nearby, and police eventually nabbed 19-year-old Stephan Swindell and 50-year-old Ronald Swindell in the area. They're being questioned; one has prior burglary arrests on his record. (More Keri Russell stories.)
