Police are searching for two armed robbers who burst into an apartment in Sunnyside overnight, tied the homeowner up, and then fled the scene with $10,000 worth of valuables.
The home invasion took place at around midnight inside an apartment at 43-19 39th Pl, in a residence belonging to a 38-year-old man, according to police.
The suspects knocked on the door of the apartment and, after the man opened the door, the intruders barged their way inside brandishing a firearm, police said.
The assailants hit the victim over the head with the gun and tied him up with zip ties, police said.
They then stole a Rolex watch, a gold chain, shirts and rings, before fleeing the scene eastbound towards 40th Street, police said.
Police said the victim refused medical attention. He told police he did not know the suspects.
