Police in Harlem are searching for two men who posed as maintenance workers while robbing an apartment building, and their getaway driver.

Back on July 11th, police say the two suspects entered a building on 7th Avenue at around 10:10 a.m.

The two men knocked on an apartment door and when a resident answered, pushed their way in.

The suspects showed a firearm and demanded money from the victims.

The robbers got away with jewelry and money from the apartment.

They got away in a waiting black Infiniti G37.

The vehicle was driven by a third suspect, had New York license plates and a Puerto Rican flag sticker in the middle of the rear trunk lid.

The first two suspects are described at Black males, ages 30-40, 5'10"-6'00", 160-180 pounds, and wearing blue maintenance pants and shirts, and tan construction boots.
