THE BRONX - Police are looking for three people who they say pretended to deliver flowers in order to violently rob a Bronx woman in her own apartment. 

According to investigators, a Hispanic woman holding flowers knocked on the victim's door inside a building on East 169th Street last Monday, and two Hispanic men forced their way in. 

Authorities say the female suspect pulled out a gun, and helped knock the victim to the ground and tie her up with duct tape while one of the men ransacked her bedroom. All three then fled the apartment with cash.
