Roosevelt Home Invasion Under Investigation
Nassau County police are investigating an armed home invasion in Roosevelt that left two victims wounded on Sunday night.
Three masked men armed with a handgun and shotgun broke into a Rose Avenue home through an unlocked front door and confronted three residents inside at 9 p.m., police said.
One gunman pushed a man in the house into a wall, forced him onto the floor—chipping his tooth—and stole cash from his pocket.
A woman ran from the house and tried to get into a passing taxi cab, which did not stop for her. A second gunman then struck the woman on the back of the head with the shotgun, causing a contusion.
Another man in the house was not injured. The victims refused medical attention.
The trio fled in a silver or champagne-colored Humvee southbound on Rose Avenue.
First Squad detectives ask anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
