It’s the season of the vic in NYC. NYPD is seeking three men who they suspect forced their way into a Manhattan apartment, tied up two women, and eventually made off with loot that included an Xbox and $460 in cash. The robbery happened the night after Christmas.
Police are hoping the public can help identify three men wanted in connection to a robbery that occurred the day after Christmas in Manhattan.
According to the NYPD, at around 7 p.m. in Kips Bay on Thursday, three men pushed their way into a 33-year-old woman’s apartment. They tied up the woman and her 14-year-old sister, and then took property and $460 before fleeing. WCBS 2 reports that the items were an XBox, iPhones and a leather coat.
The apartment is in a building across from Bellevue Hospital, and a resident told WCBS 2 that the victims might have known the robbers, “Can’t get in unless you have a key or you know someone to buzz in. The security guard don’t open the door for nobody. They’re not allowed. I’m thinking this had to be somebody they knew.”
Sounds like an inside job. Fortunately, the sisters were not hurt.
