BAYSIDE, Queens — Two men were bound and robbed during a Queens home invasion last Wednesday.

The incident happened around 1:25 p.m. as three individuals in motorcycle helmets approached a residence along 214th Place in Bayside and forced two workers working inside to let them in by breaking glass in front of the home and displaying a weapon, police said.

As the individuals entered the home, two displayed firearms and bound the male workers, ages 49 and 53, police said.

The individuals removed about $1,000 and the 53-year-old worker’s cell phone before fleeing, said cops.

The victims were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
