Elmont Home Invasion Gunman Posed as Delivery Man
A man posing as a UPS worker delivering a box tied up two women at gunpoint after one answered the door during an Elmont home invasion Tuesday afternoon, Nassau County police said.
A 35-year-old woman was home with her infant son and a 52-year-old woman when the gunman used the ruse to force his way into the house on Barbara Street shortly before 3 p.m., police said.
He tied the women up with plastic ties, ransacked the house and stole jewelry, credit cards, liquor and other items before fleeing on foot, police said. The victims were not injured.
The suspect was described as a 6-foot-tall black man, 20 to 25 years old with a slim build, wearing a brown UPS jacket, jeans and a brown skull cap.
Fourth Squad detectives ask anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
