Police are trying to track down a man that they say robbed two men at gunpoint in their Manhattan apartment.

Officers say in the early morning hours of February 12, a man in a ski mask followed one of the victims into his West 10th Street building.

The suspect then hit the man in the back of the head with a handgun, pointed it in his back, and demanded they go to his apartment, according to police.

Once inside, the attacker demanded that the victim hand over all his money and jewelry.

The suspect then went over to another man in the apartment, a 62-year-old, and also hit him in the head with the gun, according to police.

The victims say they handed over all their jewelry and about $1,400.

The attacker is believed to be about 25 years old, around 6 feet, 3 inches tall, with long, curly black hair.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
