Three armed home invasion suspects, two of whom wore UPS uniforms, tasered one of five victims and tied up two children while ransacking an Elmont residence on Friday, Nassau County police said.
The trio entered the Emily Avenue home through a side door, walked into a back room and one of the assailants bound the hands of two victims ages 8 and 15 at 7:45 p.m., police said.
A second assailant demanded money from two more victims ages 25 and 39, who said they didn’t have any, police said. The third suspect was searching bedrooms while the first and second suspect brought the 25-year-old victim into the basement, where they confronted a 21-year-old victim.
When that victim refused demands to turn over his money, one of the attackers used a stun gun on him to his back before stealing his cash, jewelry and cell phone, police said.
The trio then fled the scene in an unknown direction. The victims refused medical assistance at the scene.
All three suspects were described as black men, with the two wearing UPS uniforms being armed with black handguns, police said. The first was 6-feet, 2-inches tall with a black hooded sweatshirt underneath the uniform.
Both the second and third suspects were described as 5-feet, 8-inches tall, 200 pounds and in their 20s. The third suspect was wearing a red hooded sweatshirt and red and green LeBron sneakers.
