Police are looking for three men they say forced their way into a Kips Bay apartment, tied up a woman and a teenage girl and then robbed them.
It was on Thursday, December 26 at around 7 p.m. when the men pushed their way into the apartment and tied up the 33-year-old woman and a 14-year-old girl who were there. The suspects then swiped $460 in cash and other property before fleeing.
The suspects are described as black and were captured on surveillance video.
This crime comes on the heels of another push-in attack in the neighborhood. On December 16, Bellevue shelter resident Donnelle Murphy, 29, allegedly tried to rape a woman after forcing his way into her Lexington Avenue apartment.
