BAYSIDE, Queens — Police are looking for three people who tied up a 73-year-old woman and assaulted a 77-year-old man before robbing them in their Queens home.

The incident occurred Nov. 14 around 7:15 p.m. when the three masked men  forced their way into the couple’s Bayside home on 214th Place and 29th Avenue.

When they entered the house, the robbers threw the victims to the ground, punching and kicking the 77-year-old man, police said.

One of the masked robbers allegedly tied up the 73-year-old woman with curtains while the other two robbers forced her husband to hand over valuables, the NY Daily News reports.

The robbers got away with jewelry and $60 in cash.

Police say the victims appear to not know the robbers, described as three males.
