Five armed men dressed like NYPD cops busted into an apartment in Ozone Park yesterday, before zip tying the occupants and making off with a Rolex watch and jewelry.
The men, who were wearing NYPD knit hats and bullet proof vests, forced their way into a basement apartment on 109th Street at around 5:30 a.m. and then zip-tied a 39-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman.
The thieves, brandishing handguns, then took a Rolex watch and $20,000 in jewelry before fleeing the apartment and driving off in a van. The police did not provide an actual address of the incident, but said it was on 109th Street, near 107th Avenue.The 39-year-old was hit in the head with the back of a gun and required treatment at Jamaica Hospital. The injures were not life threatening.
The police have yet to make any arrests and the investigation remains ongoing.
Home Invasions are rarely ever random. They knew people living in a basement apartment had a Rolex, and $20,000 in Jewelry.
