Armed robbers crash birthday party at posh Manhattan building
A half-dozen armed men stormed a birthday party being held in a swank lower-Manhattan apartment building and robbed party-goers early Sunday, cops said.
The gun-toting goons pushed their way into a ninth-floor apartment at luxe 20 Broad Street just after 12:30 a.m. Sunday morning, police said.
That sent revelers running from the pad, but two couples stayed hiding in a bedroom — where the brutes busted in and socked a 20-year-old victim in the face before making off with two pairs of earrings, two pairs of sneakers, a backpack, a pair of jeans and a calculator, cops said.
A resident of the building told The Post that a company called Sonder rents out the apartments as hotel rooms similar to Airbnb — though it was unclear whether the party pad was rented under such an arrangement.
A spokesperson for Sonder did not respond to a request for comment.
