Cops are looking for a group of men who bound up and robbed a woman at gunpoint in her hotel room in Long Island City on Monday afternoon.

According to police, at 4:45 p.m. on Oct. 29, four unknown men knocked on the door of a hotel room of a Ramada Inn, located at 38-30 Crescent St., which was occupied by a 27-year-old woman. After knocking, the men forced their way inside and assaulted the woman.

The perpetrators proceeded to threaten the victim with a gun, then bound her with duct tape, law enforcement sources said. They then stole the victim’s debit card, driver’s license, cellphone and $100 in cash before fleeing the scene.

Officers from the 114th Precinct responded to the scene. The victim, who sustained minor injuries, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital-Queens, where she was treated and released.

Cops described the suspects as black men in their 30s. Two of the bandits were last seen wearing black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and dark-colored shoes, with one of these suspects also wearing a black hat. The third man was last seen wearing grey hat, black coat, black sweatshirt, black pants and grey sneakers.

Finally, the fourth suspect, who is also described as having a slim build and a mustache, was last seen wearing a black hooded jacket, dark green pants and black shoes.

Each of them were seen on security camera footage walking in a hotel hallway.
