Suffolk County police are investigating a pair of armed home invasions one week and four miles apart in Wyandanch and North Amityville.

In the second case, a resident at a 45th Street home in North Amityville opened their front door for a man with a gun who forced his way inside, ransacked the house and fled the scene empty handed shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday, May 13, police said.
Neither a description was available, nor arrests made in either case. There were no reported injuries.
First Squad detectives are continuing the investigation into both cases.
