THE BRONX - Police are on the hunt for six suspects in connection with three separate home invasions in The Bronx.

According to investigators, the crimes date back to Nov. 3 when a 56-year-old woman was choked and robbed as she entered her Ryer Avenue apartment in Mount Hope.

In a second incident, a man was caught on camera climbing a fire escape on Boynton Avenue in Soundview. The victim in that case says a PlayStation, a computer and prescription medication were stolen.

Most recently, authorities say that four men knocked on the apartment door of a 39-year-old man in Soundview and tried to get inside. The victim was able to fend them off, but one of the suspects fired three shots through the door.
