Police are searching for suspects who stole keys and crept into a Clinton Hill apartment in the middle of the night and robbed two men at knifepoint.
Seeing two men stumbling toward their apartment, one of them carrying the other, the female suspect offered to help the 28-year-old victims near Gates Avenue and Clinton Avenue on Sunday March 5 at 2am, said cops.
But while appearing to be good samaritans, they surreptitiously nabbed a set of apartment keys. Then at around 3:30am, two suspects crept back to the apartment while the victims were sleeping, blindfolded one victim and held a knife to his neck.
They demanded the victim’s debit card’s PIN and then one ran out to withdraw money from an ATM at the nearby Fulton Deli and Grocery.
After he returned, the two suspects robbed the victims’ TV, three cell phones, two laptops, one Ipad, three credit cards, and $400 in cash.
The first suspect is described by police as an 18- to 22-year-old black female. She was last seen wearing a light colored jacket and scarf, and dark colored pants.
The second suspect is described by police as an 18- to 22-year-old black male. He was last seen wearing a grey jacket and white pants.
The third suspect is described by police as an 18- to 22-year-old black male with glasses. He was last seen wearing a black jacket.
The fourth suspect is described by police as an 18- to 22-year-old black male. He was last seen wearing a light blue knitted cap and a dark colored coat.
