Be wary of kind strangers on the streets of New York because you never know if they have an ulterior motive. A pair of 28-year-old roommates found that out the hard way after they were robbed by a four-person group who helped them on their way home just hours earlier.

According to DNAInfo, the jux went down during the wee hours of March 5 when the suspects spotted the primary victim carrying his impaired roommate to their apartment near Gates and Clinton avenues in Brooklyn after a night of drinking.

The three men and a woman then approached the men and went on to help the pair get home but once inside the building, one of the suspects swiped the building keys.

A little more than an hour later two of the men returned to the apartment while the victims were asleep and proceeded to wake one of them, blindfolded him and put a knife to his throat, forcing him to give up his debit card and PIN number.

Once they got what they wanted they ransacked the apartment, making off with three cellphones, three credit cards, two laptops, an iPad, $400 in cash, and a TV (heads still robbing TVs?).

Police are now looking for the suspects who they say are all between 18 and 22-years-old.
