Robbers break into NYC apartment, assault resident and steal electronics
Two robbers broke into a 23-year-old man’s Brooklyn apartment before assaulting the victim and stealing $3,000 in electronics last weekend, police said.
One of the suspects struck the victim in his head with an iron and they both punched the man inside his East Williamsburg apartment last Sunday at about 8:20 p.m., according to cops.
The crooks searched each room for valuables — and made off with a Mac laptop, a Microsoft Surface laptop, a PlayStation 5, a Xbox360, an android cellphone and an iPad, according to police.
The suspects fled the apartment, located near Moore and Bogart streets, and were last seen entering the Morgan Ave L Subway Station, authorities said.
Police said the victim suffered a cut to his head and some bruises. He was treated on scene by EMS and refused further medical attention.
The thieves were still being sought early Friday.
