A Hempstead man was tied up by a pair of gunman during a home invasion Thursday night, Nassau County police said.

The 40-year-old victim was entering his home on Stewart Avenue when two men armed with handguns forced their way inside and tied the victim’s hands at 9:40 p.m., police said.

The attackers stole the victim’s wallet and a computer before they fled the scene in the victim’s Chevrolet.

The victim was not injured. There was no description of the suspects.

The case comes after three men were charged with an attempted home invasion in Elmont last week and as the 12th Suffolk armed home invasion in six weeks was reported Tuesday.

Third Squad detectives request anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
