4 suspects in Bronx push-in robbery caught on camera
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Police in the Bronx are looking for four suspects wanted in a push-in robbery, and they're hoping surveillance video and an image will lead to some arrests.
The 15-year old victim is too scared to show his face, and you could hardly blame him.
This weekend two men stormed into his family's apartment and held him at gunpoint.
But the story doesn't begin there. It starts with two women who set the whole thing up by ringing the doorbell.
The teen looked through the peephole and spoke to them in Spanish.
That's when the men burst in. As they do, you can see one of the women head down the hall.
In the meantime, the suspects took the boy into a back bedroom where he was pleading for his life.
The suspects spent 27 minutes in the apartment, before leaving with an iPhone, an iPad, some cash, and oxycontin.
The images were recorded by a surveillance camera inside the apartment which the boy's father set up, afraid that something exactly like this might happen.
He recently settled an injury lawsuit, hence the pain pills.
But he believes the robbers were really after his financial windfall.
Police were back at the building Thursday, but until the suspects are caught, the family won't rest easy.
Anyone with information in regards to this robbery is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
