Police on Monday released video footage of two suspects who impersonated police officers during a home invasion in Glendale last month where they allegedly stole around $10,000 cash.

The suspects, who were dressed as police, rang the doorbell of a house in the vicinity of Woodhaven Boulevard and Doran Avenue on July 23 at around 1 a.m., according to the NYPD.

The pair identified themselves as police officers to a 27-year-old woman who was inside the residence and said they were looking for her boyfriend, the NYPD said.

The police impersonators then kicked the door open and barged their way into the house before handcuffing the woman, cops said.

The suspects then stole around $10,000 cash from the house before fleeing in a dark-colored Ford Mustang.

There were no injuries reported.

CCTV footage released by police shows two of the suspects walking up to the house before the home invasion takes place.

One of the perpetrators can be seen waving a flashlight and wearing a blue t-shirt with what appears to be the NYPD emblem on the left breast. He is also wearing a baseball hat, gloves and there are handcuffs hanging from his belt. He has a tattoo on his lower left arm.

The video does not get a clear shot of the second suspect.

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). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/

Op-ed: Protecting Forest Hills Stadium

Jun. 14, 2024 By Thomas Grech

After more than a decade since its rebirth, it is unfathomable to consider Forest Hills without our venerable 101-year-old Forest Hills Stadium. The iconic venue is an asset to our community in so many ways – from creating jobs, to supporting local organizations, to providing invaluable links to our community’s rich history. Amazingly, a small band of unrealists who fail to understand that communities are constructed on the mutual grace and respect of our neighbors, want to shut down Forest Hills Stadium for good.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
