Men Pose as Con Ed Workers and Invade Ozone Park House at Gunpoint

March 17, 2022 By Christian Murray

Police are looking for two men who posed as Con Ed workers and invaded an Ozone Park house at gunpoint last month.

The men, who were wearing dark colored clothing and safety vests, approached a 41-year-old man at the entrance to his property in the vicinity of 95th Avenue and 83rd Street at around 11:15 a.m. on Feb. 28.

The suspects brandished handguns and forced their way into the victim’s house. Once inside, they rounded up two other individuals, a 62-year-old woman and 74-year-old man, who were inside the location.

The men then then struck the 41-year-old with their handguns and restrained him with duct tape before they removed $3,000 in cash from inside the home. The suspects then fled the scene southbound on Digby Place in a green sedan.

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).
