There was a frightening home invasion in Brooklyn early Friday, in which the suspects are said to have dressed as police officers.They allegedly knocked on the door saying they were cops. They were apparently wearing outfits that looked like those of the NYPD, wearing windbreakers with the NYPD logo and dark sunglasses at the time of the attack.

"You go to a lot of these places and they sell all kind of uniforms," said one neighbor.

Authorities say they forced their way inside, handcuffing a 77-year-old man and a 39-year-old woman. Two of the alleged suspects were said to be carrying guns, and used one of those guns to hit the male victim in the head.

The man was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and released.

No arrests have been made.
