The NYPD responded to a 911 call from 103-28 125th Street just before 9 p.m. Tuesday where they encountered a woman with a baby who said she was being held by two armed men and that she had been assaulted.
The suspects reportedly warned the woman to tell police that the situation was under control and that they’d shoot if the cops broke in, reported the NY Post.
Police surrounded the house before five people were released unharmed during negotiations with the men, said cops.
