Valley Stream Home Invasion Victims Threatened with Gun, Handcuffed

Nassau County police are searching for two home invasion suspects who threatened a Valley Stream man and his daughter Thursday afternoon with a semi-automatic handgun and handcuffed them to an oil tank before making their escape.

The intruders pushed their way inside the Cumberland Place home just before 1 p.m. after the 53-year-old homeowner answered the door, police said.

Once inside, one of the masked burglars confronted the man and his 21-year-old daughter and ordered them down to the ground, threatening them with a semi-automatic handgun.

The second suspect then helped himself to cash and jewelry from the home, police said.

The two men then handcuffed the victims to an oil tank in the basement and left the house.

No injuries were reported, police said.

The two men, described as black males, were both wearing masks at the time of the burglary. The armed suspect was described as being 5-foot-11 and 230 pounds. His partner was also described as being 5-foot-11 and 170 pounds.

Detectives ask anyone with information regarding the crime to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All calls are anonymous.
