Four men have been arrested for their alleged role in a Bayport home invasion during which a man was assaulted on Tuesday afternoon, Suffolk County police said.

Two men entered the house on Bayview Avenue through an unlocked door, confronted a man inside, assaulted the victim, and then fled after stealing cash and jewelry at 12:25 p.m., police said.

The victim ran to a neighbor’s house and tried to follow the suspects, who got into a waiting white Honda on Connetquot Road and drove away.

Highway Patrol officers stopped the car as it was heading westbound on Sunrise Highway in Bohemia about a half hour later, police said.

Those arrested include 20-year-old Osman Flores of Central Islip, 18-year-old Ramone Beauford of Bayport, 19-year-old Nelson Vanegas and 17-year-old Javier Gonzalez, both of Brentwood.

Each was charged with burglary. They will be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Central Islip.

Fifth Squad detectives are continuing the investigation.
