MANHATTAN — Three men barged into a Kips Bay apartment, where they tied up two sisters and stole laptops, iPhones, an Xbox and $460 the day after Christmas, police said.

The suspects pushed their way into the apartment, the location of which was not released, about 7 p.m. Dec. 26 and bound the sisters, 33 and 14, with an electrical cord and a belt, the NYPD said.

A police spokesman didn't know how the sisters were freed.

The suspects fled with the cash and electronics and were still at large Monday morning, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
