Nassau County police are searching for suspects who ripped a gold chain off a woman’s neck and stole money from her purse during a home burglary in Roslyn Heights early Saturday.

The burglars entered the home on Sherwood Lane through a side door around 12:40 a.m. and approached the victim, a 63-year-old woman, and demanded that she give them money, police said in a news release.

One of the suspects, who was wearing a red jacket, threatened the woman while another man held her down and forcefully took the chain from her neck, police said. A third suspect took an undisclosed amount of cash from the woman’s pocketbook before the four suspects fled on foot, police said.
