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.
