NEW YORK CITY – Shocking security footage captured the moment a Brooklyn family was tied up and robbed of nearly $130,000 in cash and jewelry after a man pretending to be a FedEx delivery man showed up at their door with a fake package, police said.

Around 3 p.m. on Monday, the unidentified man dressed as a FedEx worker knocked on the door of a Bay Ridge home near Sixth Avenue and Bay Ridge Avenue, according to the NYPD.

Once the fake delivery man entered the home, security footage posted on Reddit shows a second man walk up the front steps and enter the home right behind him.

The NYPD said the man dressed as the FedEx worker showed the victims a badge around his neck, telling them he was with the police, while the second man headed upstairs to the second floor of the family’s home, ransacked the victims’ bedroom and found a safe in their closet, police said.

Meanwhile, the man impersonating a cop and FedEx worker proceeded to tie up the family using tape, according to authorities. He can be seen aggressively putting tape over the victims’ mouths in the security footage.

Police said the two men left the home through a back door with the family’s safe and then fled in a blue 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a New York license plate reading “HTP 3906.”

The victims told police the two bandits stole about $45,000 in cash and $80,000 worth of jewelry.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
