Two men tied a woman up at gunpoint during an Island Park home invasion before they were chased off by her husband and fled with keys this week, Nassau County police said.

The 42-year-old victim was entering her Kingston Boulevard home when two men hiding behind a parked vehicle forced their way inside with her and tied her up with a phone chord shortly before 9 a.m. Wednesday, police said.

One of the assailants flashed a handgun and stayed with the victim while the other went upstairs to search for valuables when he was confronted by the victim’s husband, who was in bed, police said.

The husband chased the duo out of the house before they fled in a black, two-door BMW with tinted windows that was last seen heading southbound on Broadway.

The victim was not injured.

Both suspects were described as white men wearing dark clothing, black hooded sweatshirts and white sneakers. The first suspect was described as 6-feet, 2-inches tall with a medium build, wearing tan army pants and armed with a black revolver. The second was 5-feet, 8-inches tall with a heavy build.
