A 76-year-old Brooklyn woman was robbed of $100,000 in casino winnings during a brazen home invasion.

Two men posing as Jehovah’s Witnesses knocked on the door of Yvonne Reeder’s door then pushed their way in.

Reeder said they knew where to look, rushing right into the bedroom and grabbing her lockbox filled with the $100,000 in cash.

The money came from playing slots during two trips to Atlantic City, Reeder told The New York Post.

She was not injured during the robbery.
