Police are searching for three men suspected of tying up an 18-year-old Glendale resident and stealing more than $9,000 in cash and goods in a violent home invasion last week.
The break-in and robbery happened at around 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 22, when two men wearing ski masks entered the victim’s home near 84th Street and Myrtle Avenue and began to attack him, police say.
The two men both pulled out handguns, with one of them striking the 18-year-old across the face with the weapon. They then tied the victim up before rummaging through his property.
The burglars eventually made off with $9,000 in cash, a wallet, a PlayStation 4 and a safe.
Images released by the 104th Precinct show that three men, all dressed in dark clothing, are being sought in connection to the incident. Photos of a gray SUV and a maroon minivan, which police say are connected to the home invasion, were also released.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the 104th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-321-2283.
