Posted: Updated:
EAST NEW YORK -

Police are looking for the four men they say were involved in a home invasion robbery in East New York last month.

They say the men approached the victim who was leaving his apartment near Pennsylvania Avenue and Vandalia Avenue on April 23.

Investigators say the men took out guns and hit the victim several times before taking his money and apartment keys.

The men then allegedly dragged the victim into his apartment. The men then allegedly ordered three other people who were inside the apartment into the bedroom, hitting them multiple times before zip-tying their hands behind their back.

The group is said to have gotten away with clothes and two pairs of sneakers worth $1,000.

The victims were able to free themselves and are expected to be OK.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
