Suffolk County police are investigating two armed home invasions eight hours apart last week, including one case in which a victim was pistol whipped, authorities said.

In the first case, two masked men kicked in the side dor of a Tanyard Lane home in Huntington, where one of the assailants brandished what appeared to be a shotgun at the victim inside at 4:31 p.m. Tuesday, May 12, police said.

Then at 12:46 a.m. the next morning, three men knocked on the front door of a Gould Road home in Centereach, where one of the assailants hit the man who opened the door with a handgun, police said.

The attackers stole cash before fleeing the scene in both cases. There were neither any arrests nor descriptions of the suspects involved. Detectives are continuing the investigations.
