Nassau County police are investigating an armed home invasion in Hewlett in whuch an elderly  couple was tied up on Saturday night.

A 73-year-old man was getting out of his vehicle that he had just parked in the garage of his Lakeview Drive home when two men wearing dark-colored masks, one of whom was armed with a handgun, forced the victim inside the house at 8:15 p.m.., police said.

The assailants forced the victim to walk from room to room after they demanded money and property. They found his 72-year-old wife in the master bedroom, where the same demands were made of her.

The masked duo tied both victims’ hands behind their backs before they fled with cash and jewelry.  The couple, who was not injured, then called 911.  There was no description of the suspects.

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