Police: Husband chases 2 burglars from N. Long Beach home

Police are looking for two burglars who tied up a woman in her North Long Beach home Wednesday morning and then rummaged through her possessions.

Nassau police said a 42-year-old woman was entering her Kingston Boulevard home about 8:50 a.m. when she was approached by two unknown men who had been hiding behind a parked car. They forced the woman into her home and tied her up using a phone cord, police said Thursday.

One of the suspects pulled out a black revolver and stayed with the victim downstairs, while the other went upstairs to look for valuables.

But when he got there, he was confronted by the victim's husband, who was in bed at the time. The husband chased both suspects out of the house, and police said they were seen getting into a black two-door BMW with tinted windows and fleeing south on Broadway.

Police said the suspects might have gotten away with the victim's car keys and house keys, but no one was hurt.

The first suspect was described as being 6 feet, 2 inches tall with a medium build and wearing dark clothes, a black hooded sweatshirt, tan army pants, white sneakers and wielding a black handgun.

The second suspect was described as being about 5 feet, 8 inches tall with a heavy build, and also wearing dark clothes, a black hooded sweatshirt and white sneakers.

Anyone with information can call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 800-244-8477.
