BRONX, NEW YORK, JANUARY 29- Police are looking for a trio of robbers who conned their way into an elderly woman's home.
At around 10:20 a.m. On December 20, the trio struck inside a Prospect Avenue apartment building. Cops say a woman in her 20s knocked on an elderly woman's
apartment door claiming she had a package. The 83-year-old opened her door as the three pushed their way inside.
Investigators say at least one of the suspects displayed a gun to the senior. They proceeded to bound the 83 year old with duct tape. It is unclear what the trio thought they could steal from the woman but all they made off with was $5 in cash.
Police released surveillance video of the alleged home invaders. The suspect who posed as the deliveryman is described as a Hispanic woman between the ages of 20 and 25. She is 5 foot 7 and weighs 160 pounds. She was last seen wearing a gray hoodie and pants, long braids, a blue cap, and black shoes.
