Woman, 70, robbed at gunpoint inside Bensonhurst apartment

Cops say a 70-year-old woman was held at gunpoint and robbed by two men posing to be deliverymen inside her apartment near the corner of 65th Street and 23rd Avenue in Bensonhurst on Monday, July 2.

According to reports, at around 12:15 p.m., the two crooks knocked on her door and stated they were the super. The pair was dressed in all brown uniforms and at least one was holding a UPS package, authorities said.

Once the woman started to open the door, the pair pushed it open and entered her home. Once inside, the crooks duct taped her mouth, took out a gun and pointed it at her and her aide while demanding money.

Once the perps took the cash, they left the building and fled in a black BMW. No arrests have been made.
