The hunt is on for a woman and two men who police say used a phony flower delivery to violently rob a woman in the Bronx.

The New York City Police Department says the three suspects knocked on the victim's apartment door shortly after 11 a.m. on March 17th.

When the victim answered, the female robber said she was delivering flowers.

Police say the two men then forced their way inside, and punched the victim to the floor.

Their female accomplice pulled out a gun and ordered the victim to cooperate.

While one of the men tried to tie the victim up with duct tape, the other stole cash from her bedroom.

All three robbers then fled east on 169th Street.

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.
