Police are investigating a home invasion Wednesday morning in North Valley Stream in which a 92-year-old woman was robbed while eating breakfast, police said.

The male suspect entered the Carole Court home at 9:30 a.m. through an unlocked side door and approached the victim in her kitchen, Nassau County police said.
