Two masked robbers broke into a Staten Island home Wednesday morning and zip tied a family of three before making off with $2,900 in cash and jewels, police said.
A 67-year-old man was in his garage on Howard Avenue near Stratford Avenue in Grymes Hills when the intruders punched him in the face and zip tied his hands, authorities said. One of them flashed a knife as they assaulted him, police said.
A crook then entered the house and zip tied the man’s 57-year-old wife and 26-year-old daughter in a second-floor bathroom, police said.
The suspects then stole $2,900 worth of cash and jewelry from the house and speed off in a grey minivan with Pennsylvania plates, police said.
The man was taken to Richmond University Medical Center in stable condition with cuts to his face, police said.
