Cops are looking for a thief who beat up a man and stole his wallet during a home invasion near the Queens/Nassau border.

According to police, at 2:50 a.m. on April 21, an unknown individual followed a 65-year-old man into his home, located in the vicinity of 263rd Street and East Williston Avenue in Bellerose.

Law enforcement sources said the suspect pushed the door open, displayed a handgun and hurled the victim to the ground; he then punched him numerous times in the face. The dramatic encounter can be seen in the security video police provided on April 25.
