BROOKLYN -

Police are trying to track down two men who allegedly impersonated officers to get away with a robbery.

Police say the duo pulled over a 46-year-old man in Sunset Park back in August. They allegedly showed him badges, handcuffed him and put him into a car.

Police say they took $1,600, a credit card, an iPhone and jewelry from him before driving the victim home.

Official say the suspects then followed him into his apartment and tied up a 50-year-old woman inside. They then took another $1,000 and more jewelry before leaving in a minivan.

The victims were not hurt.

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