Cops are looking for four suspects who tried to break into a Fresh Meadows home early Friday morning.

Police say that at 1 a.m. on Oct. 4, four unknown individuals tried to break into a residence in the vicinity of 50th Avenue and 175th Place. The group was unsuccessful and fled the scene in a dark-colored mini-van.

The mini-van was ultimately abandoned in front of a home on 52nd Avenue near 108th Street. No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

Two of the suspects were spotted on video ditching their firearms in front of 51-23 108th St., which was released by the NYPD on Oct. 5:
