An elderly couple was rushed to the hospital Wednesday after police say robbers beat them up in their own home in Queens.

Police say two men claiming to be maintenance workers entered the house at 212-03 15th Avenue in Bayside.

That's when officials say they beat up the 86-year-old man and his 85-year-old wife.

The men got away with some money and jewelry, according to police.

Both victims were injured, but police expect them to recover.

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.
