Yonkers police are looking for a group of men who threatened to hurt a woman's baby to get into her apartment, then burned her with an iron as they robbed her apartment.The suspects stole about $6,000 in cash and about $10,000 in jewelry and electronics, officials say.

The 30-year-old woman was reportedly entering her apartment on Wednesday afternoon when a man forced his way in by threatening her 2-month-old infant. Apparently, several other men who were hiding on the stairwell, also entered the apartment.

Police say the men tied her up, burned her and punched her as they demanded cash and jewelry. The woman was treated at a hospital and released.

There was no immediate response from police as to why there was so much cash in the apartment.
