NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A terrifying home invasion took place in broad daylight in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn Monday.
Police say a robber dressed as a postal worker and tricked a family to get inside their house and rob them Monday afternoon.
Surveillance video exclusively obtained by CBS2 shows what appears to be a mailman walking up the steps of the home to make a delivery around 12:45 p.m.
“Somebody knocked on the door, a guy wearing a USPS jacket,” said Aziz Ziyaev. “He asked me to sign something. When I looked down, he pepper sprayed me.”
Ziyaev, 20, was barely able to see. Suddenly, the college student was placed in a chokehold by a second man, who trailed up the stairs behind the first. The first man had already pushed his way inside the home.
