Robbers kicked open the door of a Manhattan apartment and beat a 51-year-old man inside, the NYPD said.
The robbers broke into the man's apartment building near FDR Drive and went up to his floor at about 3 a.m. Sunday.
One man kicked in the door and beat the 51-year-old victim with his fist and with a firearm, while demanding money.
A second suspect never entered the apartment.
In the end, the robbers stole nothing, according to police.
The victim had cuts to the head but refused medical attention.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
