Police are searching for three suspects who posed as flower deliverymen, assaulted a woman, broke into her Jamaica Estates home and stole approximately $20,000 worth of loot on Friday afternoon, according to authorities.

An unidentified man rang the doorbell of a home on Haddon Street just before 1 p.m. on Dec. 18, claiming he was a flower deliveryman. When the woman opened the door, the man pushed her down to the ground and struck her in the face with an unknown object, according to authorities.

A second man then exited a white van outside the house, as a third man exited a black sedan, police said. The trio entered the home and gathered approximately $20,000 worth of jewelry and clothing before fleeing in an unknown direction, according to authorities.

EMS later arrived at the scene and transported the victim to Long Island Jewish Medical Center, where she is in stable condition with injuries to her face and ear, police said.

Authorities describe all three suspects as men with dark complexions between the ages of 20 and 25, wearing all black clothing. They stood between 5 feet, 4 inches and 5 feet, 7 inches tall, police said.

Police released surveillance video taken from outside the home on Friday that shows one of the suspects approaching the house with flowers in hand. The video goes on to show the other two suspects approaching the home.

Police also released images of one of the suspects, along with the white van and black sedan.
