Man and Woman Burst Into Apartment, Beat and Rob Man: NYPD

Police are searching for the man and woman who forced their way into a Bronx apartment near the Grand Concourse and then pummeled and robbed a man inside.

The duo was captured on surveillance video standing outside the 59-year-old victim's apartment at Sheridan Avenue and East 163rd Street moments before the robbery late last month. The woman casually knocks on the door as the man stands and waits nearby.

When the victim opened the door, the two robbers forced their way inside. The male robber took out a gun and hit the man in his head over and over while demanding cash, police said. He then pushed the man into a bathroom.

All the while, the female robber grabbed a pair of sunglasses, a cell phone and an unknown amount of cash.

The victim suffered a laceration on the back of his head, a burn mark on the left side of his torso, and cuts to his fingers. He was taken to Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said the male suspect had a thin mustache and the female suspect had braces on her teeth.

The NYPD asks anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
