ELMONT/UPS impostor pulls gun on woman
A man posing as a UPS delivery worker pulled a gun on a woman who answered the door at her Elmont home Tuesday afternoon and then, after tying up the woman and her cousin, ransacked the house -- stealing jewelry, credit cards, personal items and liquor before fleeing the scene, police said.
The burglary occurred about 2:50 p.m. on Barbara Street, Nassau County police said.
The 35-year-old woman, her infant son and 52-year-old female cousin all were uninjured, according to police.
The burglary started when a man in his 20s, wearing a brown UPS jacket, a brown skull cap and carrying a box, rang the doorbell, police said. The 35-year-old answered, only to have the man place the box on the ground -- and pull a gun. The man then tied up the adults and ransacked the home, police said. Police did not place a value on the items stolen.
