The NYPD is searching for a couple of police impersonators who robbed a woman at a Middle Village home late last month.

Police from the 104th Precinct in Ridgewood responded to the residence located in the vicinity of Woodhaven Boulevard and Doran Avenue just after 1 a.m. on Saturday, July 23, where two men rang the doorbell and identified themselves to a 27-year-old woman as police officers. The suspects claimed to be looking for her boyfriend, according to the NYPD.

The fake officers proceeded to kick in the front door, handcuffed the victim, and removed approximately $10,000 from the house before making their getaway in a dark-colored Ford Mustang, police said. There were no injuries reported during the incident.

The NYPD released surveillance video of the two suspects Monday as they approached the house. Additional photos show one suspect at the front door ringing the bell before the home invasion. He wore a blue NYPD T-shirt, a dark baseball cap and blue latex gloves, and he had tattoos on his forearms.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
