On February 27, just before 2:00 a.m., the suspects followed a 28-year-old man into his apartment building on 39th Street and 10th Avenue.

The suspects bound the victim’s hands with a cell phone charger cord and stole $150 and an iPhone 5.

They then fled the location.

Police have released a photo of the suspects, seen above.
