Police search for three men who tied up, robbed Bronx family

Police are searching for three men who tied an entire family up in a Morris Avenue apartment and robbed them.



Officials say the incident happened back in June when the three suspects entered the apartment and threatened five family members with guns before tying them up with zip ties in one of the bedrooms. They say two men and three females were the victims, with the youngest one being a 15-year-old girl.



The suspects then went through the apartment and got away with almost $4,000, a personal safe and three cellphones before taking off. 



Cops released a photo of two of the three suspects. They say one man is about 5'7" and weighs about 150 pounds, one is six feet tall and weighs about 200 pounds and the third man, who wasn't photographed, is about 5'8" and 150 pounds.



Officials won't release an exact address, but say the incident occurred in the 2400 section of Morris Avenue. 



Cops say the three men fled in an unknown direction. Police reported no injuries in the case. 



Police ask anyone with information to call 1-800-577-TIPS or 1-888-57-PISTA for Spanish speakers.
