Police are searching for an armed man who burst into a 22-year-old woman’s home in Jamaica last month – and made off with a laptop.

The suspect – along with another man who has been apprehended by police — broke into the two-story residence on 102nd Rd. on Oct. 28 at around 8:10 p.m., according to police.

One of the men brandished a firearm at the victim while the other assailant stole a red-colored HP laptop from the premises, police said.

The suspects then fled the scene. The laptop is worth around $300, police said,

Police on Wednesday arrested Zakir Ahmed, 37, in relation to the incident and charged him with robbery and assault.

His accomplice, however, is still at large, and police say he was last seen wearing a two-toned sweatshirt.

The NYPD released an image of the man wanted for questioning Wednesday.

There were no injuries reported.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
