Police Release Surveillance Photos and More Details in Home Invasion

The police have released surveillance images of one of the men they believe committed a violent home invasion early Friday morning on 83rd Street. The other man was apparently wearing a mask. NYPD also released more details about the incident:

“Two unidentified individuals entered into the victim’s apartment by unknown means. Once inside one of the individuals grabbed the 21 year old male victim, displayed a knife and punched the victim in the face. The other individual grabbed the victim’s girlfriend by her hair but she was not injured. The individuals forced the victim to give them the Personal identification Number to his debit card and departed the house with his ATM card, Playstation 4, his cell phone and let his dog out of the house. Upon further investigation, it was determined that the individuals made one time withdrawal from the victim’s account. They are described as two males, Hispanic, unknown age.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips.
