Police are looking for two masked men who held a woman at gunpoint during a home invasion in Flushing Friday evening.

The intruders followed the 35-year-old woman into her apartment after she took out the trash at about 6:40 p.m. – and once inside, threw her to the floor, authorities said.

Disturbing video released by the NYPD shows the attackers struggling with the victim and one of the men pointing a gun to her head. Police said he threatened to shoot her.

The pair made off $3,000 in cash, two iPhones, a Louis Vuitton purse and credit cards, according to cops.

Police described the suspects as Asian men with thin builds. Both were wearing black masks and all black clothing, and one man had a sweatshirt with the words “OFF THE WALL” written on the back.

The NYPD did not provide details as to the specific location of the attack.

Anyone with information has been asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or submit tips to the CrimeStoppers website.
