BETHPAGE - Police say yet another Long Island senior has become the victim of a "distraction burglary" in Bethpage yesterday.

According to investigators, the 84-year-old victim says he let a man into his home who said he was buying the house behind his.

After looking out the back window and talking for several minutes, the man left. That is when the senior says he discovered jewelry and money missing.

It appears the man's accomplice slipped in and robbed the senior.
