Suffolk County police are searching for three suspects who committed an armed home invasion in North Amityville on Wednesday afternoon.

Three men broke into an Ephesus Place home, confronted residents inside and flashed a silver handgun shortly after 1 p.m., according to a police spokesman.

The trio stole cash, jewelry and electronic equipment before they fled the scene. The victims were not injured.

The suspects were described as black men, two of whom were 5-feet, 11-inches tall with muscular builds. The third was described as 5-feet, 6-inches tall and slim.

First Squad detectives are continuing the investigation. No further details were released.

The case is the 13th armed home invasion in Suffolk following a dozen similar cases in a six-week span between the first two months of this year—three of which involved shootings, one fatal.
