A 91-year-old man died after he and his 100-year-old wife were tied up in a home invasion in Brooklyn on Wednesday, police said.

Four men broke into the Decatur Street home, near Marcus Garvey Boulevard, in Bedford-Stuyvesant at about 3:30 p.m., police said.

They tied up the couple and rummaged through the house, one of several row homes on the block, according to police.

After they grabbed an undetermined amount of property, they fled.

The woman was able to untie herself and call 911, meeting officers at the door and telling them her husband, later identified as Waldiman Thompson, was still tied up inside.

Thompson was taken to Interfaith Medical Center, but he was pronounced dead there. The medical examiner will determine his cause of death.

Thompson’s wife was taken to Kings County Hospital Center where she was in stable condition, police said.
