EAST HARLEM — A man and a woman stole more than $100,000 worth of jewelry, including Rolex watches and gold bracelets, during a home invasion robbery at the Robert Wagner Houses, police said.

The suspects followed a home health aid up to the 13th floor of the public housing unit at 2369 First Ave. and pushed themselves into the building as she unlocked the door about 9 a.m. Thursday, according to the NYPD.

Once inside, they pointed their pistols at the home aid, a 33-year-old man, his two daughters, and a family relative.

The armed invaders took Rolex watches, 14-karat gold bracelets and necklaces, designer luggage, credit cards, and more than $20,000 in cash from the apartment, police said.

Nobody was injured during the home invasion. No arrests have been made, police said.
