A terrifying video has emerged of a Queens woman being robbed at gunpoint inside her apartment by two men who followed her inside after she took out the trash then stole $3,000 in cash, a handbag and two iPhones from her.
The incident took place in Flushing, Queens on Friday February 26 at 6.40pm.
According to the NYPD, the 35-year-old woman had just taken out the trash when the two men, who were outside, followed her back into her building and into her apartment.
In the video, she is seen struggling with the two men on the floor, writhing around while they hold her down.
The video begins when the men are already in the woman’s apartment, after following her inside after she took out the trash
Both were wearing black baseball caps which obscured their faces and black clothing.
One of the men was holding a handgun which he used to subdue the woman.
The video does not show the men arriving in the woman’s home or leaving.
It only shows them struggling on the ground or 40 seconds before the men drag her into another room in the apartment.
They stole $3,000 in cash, a Louis Vuitton purse, two iPhones and credit cards from the woman.
It’s unclear if they were deliberately targeting her or not. Now, the NYPD is searching for the two suspects.
One of the men held the woman down while the other searched her apartment for goods to steal
At the end of the video, the men are shown forcing the woman into another room in her home
They were described by cops as ‘Asian, skinny build, wearing black masks, and all black clothing.
‘One of the individuals is wearing a sweatshirt with the words, “OFF THE WALL” on the back.’
It’s unclear if the woman was left with any serious injuries.
Throughout the struggle, the men were threatening to shoot her.
