NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – A 69-year-old woman’s teeth knocked out as she and a man were held at gunpoint in their apartment in Brooklyn, police said.

The NYPD has already arrested one of two suspects—32-year-old Jamie Roman—but they released surveillance video Sunday of a second man they’re looking for.

The 69-year-old victim and a 71-year-old man were at an apartment near 58th Street and Fourth Avenue in Sunset Park last month when two men broke in through a window and held them up at gunpoint, the NYPD said.

The two victims fought back against their attackers. At one point they beat the woman, knocking several of her teeth out, according to police.

The armed burglars then grabbed $2,000 in cash and an iPhone before taking off.

The woman was taken to NYU Langone Hospital, where she was treated. The man was not injured.

Police said not shots were fired during the robbery.

Roman was arrested on Jan. 17 and faces charges of robbery, assault, burglary, criminal trespass and harassment.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
