Brooklyn man, 91, dies after invaders tie up him and his wife, 99

A 91-year-old Brooklyn man died, possibly from shock, Wednesday after cruel home invaders tied him and his 99-year-old wife up in their home.

The woman told police that at about 3:15 p.m., she felt someone come up behind her and throw a blanket over her head in their three-story house on Decatur St. near Marcus Garvey Blvd. in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

She said four men had somehow gotten into the house. They also tied up her husband.

“The house was not ransacked. We’re still trying to determine if anything was taken,” a law enforcement source said. “At the very least, it’s someone they knew.”

The terrifying incident caused the husband to fall unconscious, and he later died at Interfaith Medical Center.

“She has no idea that her husband has died,” the source said.

There was no forced entry into the home, sources said.
