MORRIS HEIGHTS, the Bronx — The NYPD late Thursday said they were searching for three individuals who attacked and robbed a man after forcing their way into his Bronx apartment in August.

According to police, it happened around 10:20 p.m. on Aug. 17 when the trio knocked on the man’s door, then shoved their way inside when he answered.

Once inside the Morris Heights apartment, one of the intruders pulled out a gun and pistol whipped the 34-year-old victim, striking him in the head, officials said.

The trio proceeded to search the home before fleeing with a microphone and $4,000 in cash, police said.

The man received treatment for lacerations to his head at a local hospital, according to authorities.

The NYPD released the above surveillance image of one of the thieves sought by police.

No description was giving for the other two suspects.
