MANHATTAN — The NYPD on Thursday released pictures of two men suspected of burglarizing a Washington Heights apartment last month.
A 52-year-old woman told cops that when she arrived to her apartment at 330 Wadsworth Avenue, near West 190th Street, on August 31 at 5:30 p.m., her door was unlocked and the lights were on, police said.
Several pieces of jewelry and electronics were missing, too, she told cops.
The suspects were captured on video surveillance in the building, police said, and cops do not believe the men live at the location or were visiting any of the residents.
One suspect is described as having a stocky build, close-cut black hair and was wearing a blue and white-striped polo shirt. The other suspect is heavily tattooed and has a thin build, close-cut black hair and was wearing a white T-shirt at the time of the robbery, police said.
Police are asking anyone with information about the robbery to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). Tips can also be submitted at www.NYPDCrimeStoppers.com or by text at 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
