Real NYPD officers are looking for three fake cops behind a recent attempted home invasion in Flushing.
At around 5 p.m. on Sept. 25, law enforcement sources reported, three unknown men approached a residence on Haight Street. The men identified themselves as police officers and had shields around their necks and attempted to enter the home.
Authorities said the suspects fled the location moments later without having entered the building. At this time it is unknown what prompted the fake cops to flee.
