Woman duct taped, robbed in Nostrand Houses apartment

Police say they are searching for a pair of thieves who duct taped a 75-year-old woman to her wheelchair and then robbed her earlier this month.



Officials say the two suspects pushed their way into the woman's apartment at the Nostrand Houses on July 16. The suspects reportedly strapped the woman to her wheelchair, then took her purse, pension check and jewelry, among other items.



At this time, there is no description of the suspects.



Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
