Men impersonating N.Y. officers break into woman's home and steal $10,000, police say

Video shows two men, wearing NYPD shirts, approaching a door in Queens.

New York police are looking for two men who they say impersonated police officers, broke into a woman's home and robbed her of $10,000.

Video from the incident late last month shows two men, with flashlights and wearing New York Police Department shirts, approaching the woman's Queens door. One of the men appears to have a large tattoo on his forearm in photos.

When the 27-year-old woman opened the door, the men said they were police officers and were looking for her boyfriend, the police department said. They then kicked open her door and handcuffed the woman, police said.
