The boogeyman is real — and he broke into a New Jersey boy’s bedroom, cleaned out his piggy bank and hid under his bed with a knife, cops said.
Darla Donohue told The Post she heard a rattling noise coming from 6-year-old Joshua’s bedroom at about 4 a.m. Thursday in their Fair Lawn home.
Thursday was a special night in the Donohue household because Joshua got to sleep with his mom.
“Joshua doesn’t usually sleep with me but he likes to when my husband is away, Sometimes I say yes, sometimes I say no.”
“It’s a good thing you said yes,” Joshua told his mom.
The rustling sound was homeless man Kenneth Webb, 56, shaking Joshua’s cherished change out of his ceramic piggy bank. Donohue quietly got out of her bed, leaving her son fast asleep there, and ran to the bathroom.
“When you hear a noise and you wake up and you think, ‘What do I do?’ I never felt my heart pounding so much.”
