Thieves bust into elderly man’s apartment using exterminator ruse


Three robbers posed as exterminators and forced their way into an elderly man’s Bronx apartment, then stole $3,600 cash, cops said Tuesday.


The bandits knocked on their 82-year-old victim’s door on Mahan Ave. at Buhre Ave. in Middletown just after 6:30 a.m. Sunday.


When he opened up, they pushed their way in, grabbed the victim by his throat, and searched his house for cash, cops said.


The man doesn’t like keeping his cash in the bank, so he had a $3,600 wad in one of his pockets, police sources said.


Cops released grainy surveillance photos of one of the suspects Tuesday, and are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
