Police are hunting for five gun-wielding crooks who tied up an elderly woman and robbed her in her Crown Heights home last month.
Cops said a female perp – aided by four male suspects – rang the 87-year-old woman’s doorbell at about 6:25 pm on June 15. When the victim opened the door the band of brazen thieves forced their way in, police said.
The armed robbers tied the woman up and swiped her jewelry before fleeing on foot, cops said.
Surveillance video captured the brutes staggering out of the building after the ruthless heist.
Police released a sketch of the female crook and the surveillance tape in the hope that the public could identify them.
“I urge anyone with information concerning this crime to come forward,” said Councilwoman Tish James (D–Crown Heights) in a written statement. “Attacks on the most vulnerable individuals in our society are unacceptable and deeply upsetting. No one should be unsafe in their own home.”
The male criminals range in heights from 5-foot-7 to 6-foot-2, while the female thief is believed to be 5-foot-1, according to cops.
Anyone with information regarding this robbery should call Crimestoppers at (800) 577–8477. All calls will be confidential.Reach reporter Natalie Musumeci at nmusumeci@
