Police are asking for help finding five people wanted for robbing an 87-year-old woman at gunpoint in her Brooklyn home.

It happened back on June 15 in Crown Heights.

Police say a woman, depicted in a sketch at right, rang the victim's doorbell around 6:30 p.m.


When the resident answered, four men seen on surveillance footage forced their way in.

The robbers threatened the woman with a gun, tied her up and took some jewelry.

The victim was not seriously injured.

The female robber is believed to be about five feet tall.

The male robbers are said to be between 5'7" and 6'2" tall.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
