The NYPD is looking for a man and woman possibly connected to a home invasion and robbery that left a 57-year-old victim hospitalized after he was also assaulted by the pair.
On Thursday, Feb. 11, around 11:00 p.m. at 2335 First Ave., the victim responded to a knock at his front door by two people allegedly claiming to be conducting a survey, police stated. He allowed them inside.
Once inside, the man and woman assaulted him, police added. The victim woke up several hours later and saw that he had been robbed of a laptop, an iPhone, jewelry, a watch and cash.
The victim was taken to Metropolitan Hospital where he was treated for head injuries, according to authorities.
Police described one suspect as a black man who was about 30 years old, 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds.
The woman is believed to also be about 30 years old and is approximately 5-foot-3 and 130 pounds with wavy hair.
Police obtained images of the pair from the Chambers Street subway station, and they asked anyone with information to call 1-800-577-TIPS or 1-888-57-PISTA for Spanish. Tips can also be submitted at www.NYPDcrimestoppers.com.
