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

In the first case, two men broke into a house on 30th Street in Wyandanch through a rear basement door, flashed a gun at victims inside and stole a Playstation 3 video game console shortly after midnight Wednesday, May 7, police said.

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.
