Police are searching for two men responsible for committing 26 robberies in Manhattan, the New York City Police Department announced on Wednesday morning.

The NYPD had first reported a burglary on Feb. 25 at 512 Hudson St., where the men stole electronics. Since then, police have found a pattern of at least 25 other burglaries that had taken place from Feb. 5 to March 17 in Chinatown, Tribeca and the West Village, WABC-TV Eyewitness News reported.

“It’s a miracle no one’s been hurt, that’s good,” Jack Dampf, a victim of one of the burglaries, told ABC Local.

On Feb. 26, between 9:20 a.m. and 12:45 p.m., the suspects stole three iPads and four laptops from Dampf's home, where he lives with three roommates. As of Tuesday, there have been 14 break-ins in Greenwich and the West Village, eight in Chinatown and four in Tribeca.

The usual pattern consists of the burglars gaining entry through the front doors of the locations and stealing money and electronics, CBS New York reported.
