The owner of Pistilli Realty is down some $75,000 in cash, after two armed robbers looted the real estate firm’s Queens office, the New York Daily News reported. The robbery occurred sometime around  8:30 a.m yesterday when armed suspects burst into the third-floor office on 30th Aveune in Astoria, binding the firm’s 59-year-old owner with zip-ties and cleaning out it drawers — which happened to contain tens of thousands of dollars in cash.

The ski-masked intruders also handcuffed the office’s 54-year-old receptionist, leaving her in the bathroom, before grabbing the cash. 

A source told the Daily News that one of the crooks pointed a silver handgun at the owner and said: “Listen to me and you won’t get hurt.”

No one has been arrested yet in connection to the case.

According to the firm’s website Pistilli is a family-owned business founded by “a group of hard-working Italian immigrants.” [NYDN]Christopher Cameron
