NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — The NYPD is searching for three individuals wanted in connection to a Brooklyn robbery that occurred on Saturday afternoon.

Police said an unknown female knocked on the door of an apartment at 1501 Voorhies Avenue and told the 39-year-old victim who answered that he did not pay his monthly dues.

After the victim opened the door, two men forced their way into the apartment with firearms displayed, demanding the victim’s property, at which point a struggle ensued, police said.

One of the suspects discharged his firearm, hitting the victim in the left leg, authorities said.
