Police are searching for four suspects in connection to the armed robbery of a man at his Jackson Heights apartment Friday night.

The 25-year-old victim had just entered his apartment building on 89th Street around 10:30 p.m., when he found two of the suspects waiting for him, cops said. One of the suspects, who was armed with a gun, then took the victim’s keys and went into his apartment.

Once inside, the two suspects searched the victim’s home and took an undetermined amount of cash from the residence, while two other suspects followed the victim to his residence and acted as lookouts, according to police.

The suspect armed with the gun then pistol-whipped the victim before fleeing the apartment, cops said.

Surveillance video, obtained by the police, shows the two suspects who went into the apartment, as well as the two additional suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or can text their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
