'Well-Dressed' Bandits Terrorize Queens Couple

Queens detectives seek help from the public to identify and locate a pair of well-dressed bandits who last week accosted a 56-year-old woman outside her Woodhaven home.

Police said the bandits, wearing dark blue suits, white shirts and ties, grabbed Emma Villavicenzia as she swept the steps outside her home on 88th Street and then dragged her inside. The pair used zip ties to bind her and her husband, Angel, 63, threw the couple on the floor of the house and pulled a gun before stealing cash.

The thugs kicked Angel Villavicenzia while he was laying on the floor, police sources said.

The thieves told the couple they would return to the home if they reported the incident to police or if they told anyone about the robbery.

Police described the men as Hispanic, one light skinned and the other dark skinned.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Crimestoppers Hotline at 800- 577-TIPS.—Liz Goff
