Brooklyn, NY - The NYPD is turning to the public in the hopes of apprehending two men who robbed an elderly Borough Park resident, releasing surveillance footage of the pair just moments before the robbery.
The incident took place this past Friday night at approximately 9:30 PM in the area of 50th Street and 15th Avenue. The two men entered the apartment building and forced their way into the apartment of a 76 year old man demanding money.

“A hundred times I told them listen, my money is in the bank. I don’t carry money,” the victim told CBS News.
Police told VIN News that they had no record of any words spoken during the incident and that it did not appear that any weapons were used in the robbery. The victim was not injured in the attack.
One of the suspects was described as a white bearded male, wearing a white t-shirt, dark shoes and pants and a black baseball cap. The other suspect was dressed in a black t-shirt and dark colored shorts, sneakers and a dark bucket hat.
