Masked thieves slash, rob man at Bronx apartment: police

WOODSTOCK, the Bronx — Police are looking for the group of masked men accused of violently robbing a man at his Bronx apartment last month.

On Feb. 13, police said a 27-year-old man heard a knock on his apartment door, and a group of five men forced their way into his Kelly Street apartment just before 12:30 a.m.

One of the alleged burglars had an unknown cutting instrument and slashed the victim on the left side of his face, police said.

Another displayed a handgun while the other men forcibly removed two chains from around the victim’s neck, according to authorities.
