Nassau County police are looking for three men who robbed four people at gunpoint during a Uniondale home invasion over the weekend.

The gunmen put a 23-year-old woman in a choke hold from behind in front of her Lenox Avenue home and forced her inside, where they held her and three male victims at gunpoint while they ransacked the house at 4:10 p.m. Saturday, police said.

The assailants fled the scene on foot through the rear yard when they heard a car pull up into the driveway, police said. The trio stole cell phones, lap top computers, a PlayStation 3, video games and car keys. The victims were not injured.

The suspects were described as black men, about 23 years old, wearing black t-shirts, black pants, black sneakers and black doo-rags. The first two were 5-feet, 11-inches tall—one with a full beard and 170 pounds, the other 150 pounds—carrying black revolvers with wooden handles. The third suspect was described as 5-feet, 5-inches tall, 140 pounds and armed with a silver handgun.

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