She's 87 years old and police in Brooklyn looking for the five armed robbers who forced their way into her apartment, tied her up, and then ripped her off.

It happened in the Crown Heights section last month.

But police are now releasing video of the suspects that could help put them in prison.

Detectives are looking for a pack of thieves, four men and one woman, who they say forced their way into an 87-year-old woman's Crown Heights apartment and robbed her.

The victim was too afraid to open the door Tuesday night.

Police say the suspects had a gun, they tied up their elderly victim, took jewelry and walked out of the building near Empire Boulevard and Kingston Avenue last month.

Her neighbors were disgusted watching the suspects creep out of the building.

"It could have happened to me. I live in this building. I know her very well," a neighbor said.

"She just goes and comes. She doesn't bother anybody. She speaks to everybody she sees," another neighbor said.

The male suspects ranged in height from 5'7" to 6'2". The female suspect was 5'1".
