Police are searching for four armed robbers who burst into an apartment in Sunnyside on Wednesday, punched the residents in the head, and then fled the scene with $8,000 cash.

The home invasion took place at around 9:45 p.m., in the vicinity of Skillman Avenue and 48th Street, in an apartment belonging to a 47-year-old woman and a 59-year-old man, according to police.

The suspects knocked on the door of the apartment and, after the couple opened the door, the intruders barged their way inside brandishing firearms, police said.

The intruders punched the victims in the face with closed fists and demanded money, cops said.

They then stole $8,000 cash and cell phones, before fleeing the scene in an unknown direction, police said.

Police described all four suspects as aged between 20 and 25 years of age.

The NYPD released CCTV footage of the suspects.
