THE BRONX — Police are looking for three men suspected of breaking into a Bronx apartment, tying up five family members and stealing several thousand dollars worth of their belongings.
The three men forcibly entered an apartment around 7:40 a.m. on June 28 near the Bronx’s Fordham Manor neighborhood and flashed their firearms at the home’s residents — a family of five, according to the NYPD.
The intruders then put the family in one of the Morris Avenue apartment’s bedrooms and tied them up using zip ties, officials said.
Police say the men made off with three cell phones, a personal safe and almost $4,000 in cash taken from a purse.
The family was not injured in the incident.
Two of the men were captured in a photograph, which the NYPD has released to the public in the hopes the two can be identified.
The three men are described as being in their mid 30s. One is 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing 150 pounds; another is 6 feet tall, weighing 200 pounds; and the third is 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 150 pounds.
