Duo holds woman at gunpoint, ties her up in NYC home invasion

A brazen duo forced a woman into her Queens home at gunpoint and tied her up before stealing thousands of dollars in cash and jewelry, according to cops and a new video.

One of the crooks brandished a black automatic firearm and warned, β€œDon’t yell, just open the door,” as the 32-year-old victim returned to her Rosedale home from shopping around 9 pm Aug. 10, footage released early Friday shows.

The woman compiled out of fear for her safety, cops said.

Once inside the home β€” which is located at 249th Street and 147th Avenue β€” one of the thugs hit the woman in the face and tied her hands and feet together, cops said.

They found a safe inside the home and removed $19,000 in cash, as well as $12,000 worth of jewelry, police said.
