WILLIAMSBURG — A pair of men impersonating police officers robbed a Williamsburg apartment last week, claiming to have a warrant and threatening to "shoot" their way in, police said.
The suspects, who wore what appeared to be police badges around their neck, knocked on an apartment door on Driggs Avenue Friday, July 31, around 2 a.m. and announced, "Police, we have a warrant," the NYPD said.
One of the victims, a 24-year-old male, refused to open the door, police said.
One of the suspects responded by saying, "If you don't open the door, we will shoot through it," police said. When the five people inside the apartment opened the door, the suspects flashed guns and tied them up with duct tape, police said.
The men proceeded to take $4,000 in cash and a Samsung Galaxy S5 phone, police said.
One of the suspects was described as standing 5-foot-5 and was last seen wearing a red top. The other suspect was described as standing 6 feet and weighing about 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a blue hat, tan shorts, white sneakers and a white shirt.
No one has been arrested for the incident.
