Cops are searching for a trio of armed masked men who forced their way into a senior couple’s Bayside home and made off with cash and jewelry.

On Nov. 14 at around 7:10 p.m., the 77-year-old male and 74-year-old female victims were inside their Bayside home at 214th Place and 29th Avenue when the three perpetrators rang the doorbell, police said.

Upon opening the door, authorities said, the two victims were pushed to the ground by the suspects, who then forced their way inside and displayed a firearm.

The three perpetrators then removed an undetermined amount of cash and jewelry from the home and fled the scene in an unknown direction, according to an NYPD spokesperson.

The male and female victim each sustained minor injuries in the incident. Officers from the 111th Precinct responded to the scene.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
