87-year-old man robbed while sleeping in Tremont home
An 87-year-old man woke up to a living nightmare last week when two men robbed him in his own home.
According to police, two armed suspects broke into the victim's Tremont apartment while he was sleeping, tied him up and robbed him. They say it happened just before midnight on 176th Street between Bathgate and Park avenues.
The elderly man was not hurt, but cops say he did have $1,000 stolen.
Both suspects are described as black males with Jamaican accents. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
