Robbers Tie Up Man in His Home And Steal $900, Police Say
THE BRONX — Two armed men used tape to tie up a tenant in his Decatur Avenue apartment last Tuesday before taking $900, jewelry, a cellphone and credit card, an NYPD spokeswoman said.
After the 8 p.m. robbery, the men tried to use the tenant's credit card at a Rite Aid near West 125th Street and Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard in Harlem, police said.
Police officials did not immediately know how the suspects accessed the apartment or how the tenant managed to free himself.
The victim, whose name and address were not released, was treated for minor injuries, the NYPD said.
One of the suspects, who were both recorded inside the Harlem Rite Aid, was wearing a gray sweatshirt, according to the NYPD.
The second suspect wore a dark jacket over a hoodie with a purple baseball cap, police said.
