living in the city, what are the odds of a break-in or break-in attempt while your sleeping?

in the city, like LA or new york or toronto with a population of 350,000 and hearing about break-ins on the news everyday literally, i fear something would happen.

Not very good actually. Home invaders like to break in/steal/breakout as quickly as possible without any obstruction or risk of being caught, they generally don't break in at night. Most breakin's take place during the day between 9am-4pm when people are at work/kids are at school. The typical breakin takes 10 mins: break in, steal items, escape. Burglars don't like to get caught, and doing this at night would up their odds of getting caught to pretty much 100%.

Having a secure home with locked and alarmed doors and windows makes a lot of difference. The number of stories that say the perps were able to walk in through an open door proves this. Chances are higher if you live in a "transitional" district; one that is being gentrified so that the lowlifes are moving out and better heeled people are moving in. The mix means that scumbags see a neighbor with a nice car carrying in shopping from upmarket stores and target them. It's just a matter of being alert and sensible.

Most break-in's occur when the people aren't home. There trying to steal your stuff not kill you lol. It has happend but I've never heard in all my life of it happening. It just in the movies and tv-shows. If your really worried invest in an alarm system.

50/50 Targets are chosen for a reason. What might you own that someone would be bold enough to break in on you while your home. I would hide a weapon or two near you just in case or maybe in the bathroom too since that is where your most likely to barricade yourself if you have that option.
