Two men force their way into a man’s Williamsburg home and robbed him last week.
On Sept. 27 at 11:50 a.m., two individuals knocked on the door of a residence near Grand Street and Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg. When the 31-year-old man opened the front door, the two men forced their way inside, police said.
Inside, one of the men displayed a weapon and demanded the victim tell them his ATM PIN number. The suspect then held the victim at bay, while his accomplice left the residence and went to two separate ATMs where he used the victim’s PIN to withdraw $600 in cash, according to police.
The pair also removed $300 in cash, an iPad, and two iPhones from the victim’s residence.
Police released the above video and following descriptions of the suspects. The first man is described as Hispanic, about 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighing 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a Nike jacket, white sneakers and dark jeans.
The second suspect is black and was last seen wearing a red waist-length jacket, grey sweatpants, and white and yellow sneakers.
