Nassau County police are investigating an Island Park home invasion in which two masked gunmen shot a man they had tied up along with a woman on Wednesday night.

The man and woman were inside the man’s Industrial Place home on Barnum Island when two men armed with handguns tied up the victims using zip ties and demanded money and jewelry at 10:15 p.m., police said.

One of the gunmen then fired a shot, hitting the man in his leg, police said. The victim was later treated at the scene.

The assailants fled in the victim’s vehicle with cash and jewelry.  Police recovered the vehicle nearby.

The suspects were described as 20-30 years old, medium height and build. They were wearing black ski masks, blue jeans and dark jackets. They were last seen running northbound on Audubon Boulevard.

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