THE BRONX - Cops are trying to track down two suspects who they say used hammers to threaten a 17-year-old during a home invasion. 

According to police, the teen answered when the suspects rang his doorbell on East 213th Street last Friday. 

The men, who were caught on surveillance video, allegedly pushed through the door of the victim's apartment, tied him up with duct tape and ran off with $5,000. The teenager was not hurt.
