Husband held at gunpoint during Silver Terrace burglary

A man had a handgun pointed at his forehead during an early morning burglary in Silver Terrace on Thursday, police said.

The 41-year-old man and his wife were in bed around 2 a.m. when two men appeared in their bedroom, police said. One of the burglars put a gun up to the husband’s forehead, telling him to be quiet and to open a locked cabinet.

The two burglars stole property from the cabinet and then escaped from the home on Bancroft Avenue near Phelps Street with cash, tablet devices and a purse, police said.

They are described as between 20 and 30 years old.

The husband and wife were not injured.
