He thought he was showing the two men an apartment for rent at his north Flushing home.

They had other plans.

The two gun-toting robbers stole $200, police said.

Video from around 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 5 captures the men walking up to the porch of a home by 157th Street and 26th Avenue and being let in through the door.

After they got inside, they took out their weapons and demanded money, according to the NYPD.

The victim wasn’t injured in the robbery, police said.

Anyone with information about the perpetrators is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS (8477) or, for Spanish, 1 (888) 57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit tips by logging onto nypdcrimestoppers.com, or by texting 274637 (CRIMES), then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
