Police from the 109th Precinct in Flushing are looking for two men who allegedly broke into a College Point home and made off with a safe last week.

On the afternoon of Friday, Sept. 24, at a private residence in the vicinity of 15th Avenue and 124th Street, one of the suspects forced open a front window and gained entry to the home while the second man served as a lookout, according to the NYPD.

Once inside, the man removed an unanchored safe from inside a bedroom closet. The two suspects fled the scene in an unknown vehicle, police said.

The safe, valued at $200, contained $24,000, ID and documents, a $1,400 pair of Tory Burch sunglasses, and a Bulova watch valued at $1,000, police said.

The NYPD released images of the two men from video surveillance.

One suspect wore a gray baseball cap with a dark shirt and a backpack. The second man was wearing a black face mask and a dark baseball cap and a two-tone T-shirt.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the suspects is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782).
