Cops are looking for two suspects who dressed as deliverymen to get inside a house on East 80th Street.

BROOKLYN - Police have released surveillance video of two suspects who were stopped in their tracks by a 10-year-old boy during a home invasion in Canarsie.

According to investigators, the two attempted robbery suspects were caught on camera when they dressed as delivery men to get inside a house on East 80th Street Monday night.

Two teenage sisters opened the door for the men, but the apartment owner slammed the door on one of the suspect's arms, forcing him to drop his gun. That's when the young boy picked up the weapon and fired, sending the suspects running empty handed.
