THE BRONX -

A surveillance video shows a brazen home invasion in the Bronx, police say.

The incident happened on Dec. 31, inside of an apartment building on Southern Boulevard and Leggett Avenue.

The video shows a woman waiting at the victim's door with what appears to be a package while two men wait nearby with guns.

As soon as the 62-year-old man opens the door, the suspects storm in with guns drawn.

Police say the two men tied up eight people inside the home and pistol whipped a 60-year-old man in the face before stealing $5,500.

Surveillance video also shows the three suspects running to what appears to be a getaway car.

The black-colored BMW sedan with tinted windows is seen speeding away down Bruckner Boulevard.

The man who was pistol whipped was transported to Metropolitan Hospital where he was treated and later released.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
