THE BRONX - Police say two men claiming to be exterminators tied up a woman inside her Hunts Point apartment.

They say the two suspects, armed with guns, pushed their way past the 34-year-old woman when she opened the door to her apartment on Beck Street.

Police say the suspects then tied her up, along with three other people inside.

The suspects allegedly searched the apartment, asking the victims where they kept money.
