Queens, New York – The NYPD is on the hunt for two individuals who reportedly posed as delivery men and carried out a violent robbery at a home in Queens, stealing approximately $70,000 worth of items. The incident occurred last Wednesday in the Long Island City area.
Based on the information provided by law enforcement officials, the two suspects approached the residence on Crescent Street and 43rd Avenue, presenting themselves as delivery men. When the 22-year-old woman and 25-year-old man answered the door, the suspects forcibly entered the premises, brandishing a firearm and using duct tape to restrain and silence the victims.
Once inside, the perpetrators allegedly absconded with valuable possessions, including a Rolex watch and a significant amount of cash, before escaping on foot. Police believe the stolen items amount to around $70,000 in total.
Authorities have released descriptions of the suspects. The first individual is described as a male with a light complexion and a slender build. He was last seen wearing a black winter hat, black winter jacket, black pants, and grey sneakers. The second suspect, also a male, has a light complexion, a thin build, and black hair. He was last seen wearing a black winter jacket, black pants, and white sneakers.
Any person with information about the suspects’ whereabouts or identities is encouraged to contact law enforcement. The NYPD is working diligently to apprehend those responsible for this violent crime and bring them to justice.
Home invasions in the area are on the rise. The local authorities advise residents to be cautious when opening doors to strangers and to contact the police immediately if they see anything suspicious.
