Robbers Steal $3, Fax Machine in Home Invasion in BP

Police are trying to identify two men who they said robbed a man inside his home in Brooklyn

It happened around 9:30 p.m. Friday on 50th Street and 15th Avenue in Borough Park.

The 76-year-old victim said he was returning home from synagogue when the suspects made their move. Surveillance video shows the suspects follow the victim up to his apartment, where they forced their way in after he opened the door, police said.

The suspects then ransacked the apartment. The victim said the ordeal lasted between 15 and 20 minutes. In the end, the two eventually fled with a fax machine and $3 in cash, police said.

The victim, who was not hurt, said he never saw the suspects’ faces and didn’t call police because the men disconnected his telephone cords.

He told his friend about the incident more than 24 hours later. That friend then contacted the police.
