Nassau police search for suspects in Elmont home invasion, officials say

Nassau police are investigating a home-invasion robbery in Elmont early Sunday.

Police said that at about 3:11 a.m., four males came into the home on Leighton Road wielding handguns and a stun gun.

They awoke a girl, 17, and two women, ages 35 and 45, who lived at the home, and demanded cash, police said, adding that the suspects left with an unknown amount.

The men struck the two women with a handgun to the head and hit the girl in the arm with a stun gun. The men "ransacked" the house while the women were kept in the bathroom, police said in a news release.

Police described four suspects in their mid-20s. One suspect is 6 feet tall and wore a white baseball cap and a red, long-sleeved plaid shirt, police said. Another, police said, was 5-foot-8, had a goatee and mohawk, and wore a baseball cap.

Police said the third suspect is about 5-foot-5, with a stocky build and brown eyes, and he wore shiny earrings and a silver watch. The fourth suspect is 5-foot-6 and thin and wore dark clothes with a hood, police said.

Anyone with information should call 800-244-TIPS. Calls are anonymous.
