BROOKLYN - An 80-year-old woman was robbed at gunpoint after returning to her Park Avenue apartment Thursday, officials say. 

A gunman and two other men allegedly forced Maria Lugo into her kitchen as they searched her apartment.

The stolen items included a flat screen TV, a video game console and more than $300 in cash. 

Neighbors believe that Lugo was targeted, as she and her daughter arrived home with the TV on Wednesday night. 

Lugo, who has lived in the apartment for 61 years, was not injured in the attack.
