Police are searching for pair of armed robbers who claim to be inspecting for bed bugs.

Police say the two men robbed a man in his 60s at his apartment in Murray Hill Wednesday morning.

The suspects knocked on his front door, pulled out a gun, struck the man on the head and tied him up.

The thieves got away with some of the man's things in a Dodge Nitro SUV.

The victim sustained a laceration to his head and was taken to a local hospital in stable condition.
