Police are investigating an armed home invasion in Riverhead on Wednesday afternoon.

A 40-year-old man was walking to his car parked outside of his Maplewood Lane home with a 38-year-old Bay Shore woman when two masked men flashed a handgun and ordered the victims back inside the house at 3:27 p.m., Riverhead Town Police said.

The assailants stole a bag of cash from a bedroom closet and another bag of cash from the vehicle before they fled the scene, police said.

Officers responded to the house after receiving a 911 call in which the caller hung up without saying anything and upon arrival, the victims were uncooperative, police said.

Investigators searched the area for the suspects but did not find them.
