Delmar shower struggle leads to burglary, robbery charges

Bailey then got up and apologized to the victim and told her he was putting the money back in her robe, but returned the pouch without the $137, which he kept, according to police.

The victim told police that she had a relationship with Bailey about a year before the incident and that he must have made a copy of her key at one point because she "was sure" her door was closed and locked before she took a shower, the report states.

Police said she also told officers that Bailey "has a crack cocaine habit" and she believes he previously stole cash and checks from her apartment.

The victim complained of back pain from the incident but refused medical treatment saying she would follow up with her own doctor, according to police.

She was transported to the Bethlehem Police Department for "safety reasons" and then moved to temporary housing but could not be contacted by police the following day at Bailey's arraignment.

Bailey was arraigned by Bethlehem Town Justice Ryan Donovan and sent to the Albany County Correctional Facility in lieu of a $30,000 cash bond, the report states. He is expected to appear at Bethlehem Town Court on Feb. 18.
