Cops are looking for two armed thieves who terrorized an 18-year-old man and stole thousands of dollars in property during a Glendale home invasion this week.

The 104th Precinct responded to a call about a home invasion in Glendale that occurred at about noon on Jan. 22  in the vicinity of 78th Avenue and 84th Street.

Law enforcement sources said the victim was at home when the two suspects, who were wearing ski masks, entered the location and pulled a gun on him. One of the invaders then pistol-whipped the victim, then tied him up.

Cops said that the thieves proceeded to search the home and removed $9,000 in cash along with a wallet, a PlayStation 4 video game console and a safe. The gunmen then fled the location in an unknown direction.

There was no physical description of the men and no identifying marks, according to NYPD. The victim was not seriously injured.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit the Crime Stoppers website, send a direct message on Twitter to @NYPDTips or a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
