Suffolk County police are investigating two armed home invasions one day apart last week, including one case in which the victim was pistol-whipped.
Three suspects forced their way into a Meadowmere Avenue home in Mastic, where one of the assailants hit the victim in the face with a handgun before the trio stole cash and fled the scene at 10:30 p.m. Saturday, police said.
That case came a day after two men entered a Tanyard Lane home in Huntington, flashed a gun and demanded drugs and money from a victim inside at 3:30 p.m. Friday, police said. The victim said he didn’t have any money or drugs, and the suspects left empty handed, police said.
There was no description of the suspects nor were arrests made in either case. The Mastic victim suffered non-life threatening injuries. Detectives are continuing the investigations.
