Have You Seen... Brooklyn Home Invaders
Police say these guys go to Bed-Stuy and Fort Greene dress up like maintenance men, come to apartments at night, and tell residents (female, alone) they've come to fix something; despite their almost comically sinister appearance, they are admitted, whereupon they draw a gun, ransack the place, and leave with jewelry and cash. They pulled it at Carlton Avenue near Atlantic on Monday, and at Lewis Avenue and DeKalb on Tuesday. They're described as 25-30 years old, 5'10"-6'0" (tall), and of medium build.
Two things: one, don't be taking unannounced maintenance calls at night from anyone, and two, if you have information as to these men or these incidents, NYPD asks you to contact 1-800-577-TIPS(8477), www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
