The home of former “Felicity” star Keri Russell was  broken into around 3 a.m. this morning, a rep for the actress confirmed to ABC News.

“Everyone is fine,” the rep said. “Keri sends her thanks to the police.”

Reports have the actress, 37, sleeping at the time of the break-in. Two suspects are now in custody and are being questioned, police confirm.

A spokeswoman for the New York Police Department said a second victim, a 70-year-old white female, was the reason the suspects were apprehended. Her home was also broken into at around 5:20 a.m., after Russell’s. She then gave police a description of the suspects — Steffon Swindell, 19, and Ronald Swindell, 50 – who were taken in for questioning after police had canvassed the area.

There are no reported injuries, and electronics and jewelry were taken during the thefts, police said.

The two suspects are being charged with burglary, and for the second theft,  criminal possession of stolen property.

The police said they are looking into the first break-in at Russell’s brownstone but could not confirm whether the two break-ins were connected.

Russell is currently starring in the FX drama “The Americans.” It’s unknown if Russell’s husband, Shane Deary, and two children, daughter Willa Lou, 23 months, and son River, 6, were in the home at the time of the break-in.
