Police are looking for a duo who stole money and jewelry from a senior woman’s Astoria apartment back in October.

According to authorities, at 4 p.m. on Oct. 22, two unknown men gained access to an apartment in the vicinity of 29th Street and 20th Avenue by posing as utility workers to a 77-year-old woman.

Once inside, law enforcement sources said, the impostors took an undetermined amount of cash and jewelry. The suspects then fled the scene on foot towards Astoria Boulevard.

Police describe the suspects as 30-year-old Hispanic men standing 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing 130 pounds. The NYPD released video of them on Dec. 6.

The first suspect, who has brown hair, was last seen wearing a black and gray hooded sweater, blue jeans, black boots and a dark baseball hat. The second suspect, described as having brown eyes and brown hair, was last seen wearing a red and dark blue plaid hooded sweater, dark pants, work boots, a blue “YANKEE” baseball hat.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
