VIDEO: Woman Robbed at Gunpoint During Flushing Home Invasion: NYPD

Woman held down with a gun to her head while robbed inside her Flushing apartment (NYPD)

Police are looking for two masked men who held a woman at gunpoint during a home invasion in Flushing Friday evening.

The intruders followed the 35-year-old woman into her apartment after she took out the trash at about 6:40 p.m. – and once inside, threw her to the floor, authorities said.

Disturbing video released by the NYPD shows the attackers struggling with the victim and one of the men pointing a gun to her head. Police said he threatened to shoot her.

The pair made off $3,000 in cash, two iPhones, a Louis Vuitton purse and credit cards, according to cops.

Police described the suspects as Asian men with thin builds. Both were wearing black masks and all black clothing, and one man had a sweatshirt with the words “OFF THE WALL” written on the back.

The NYPD did not provide details as to the specific location of the attack.

Anyone with information has been asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or submit tips to the CrimeStoppers website.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
