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.

The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
