NEW YORK (AP) - Police are looking for a suspect who stole two safes containing cash and personal documents from a New York City apartment.

The NYPD says the suspect entered the Bronx apartment on Wednesday after ringing the tenant’s door buzzer and telling her to come downstairs to sign for a package.

When the woman didn’t find anyone in the lobby, she returned to the apartment where she was confronted by the suspect.

Police say the man displayed a gun and dragged her by the hair into the bedroom. They say he then struck her on the head with the butt of the gun and removed a small safe.

The suspect then dragged the woman to another room where he removed another small safe. He then fled.

The victim refused medical attention.
