Brentwood Home Invasion Victim Pistol Whipped

Suffolk County police are investigating an armed home invasion in Brentwood during which the victim was pistol whipped early Monday morning, authorities said.

Three masked men broke into a Le Grande Street home through a downstairs window, hit the victim in the back of the head with a handgun and stole a cell phone at 4:34 a.m., police said.

The suspects fled the scene. Fourth Squad detectives are continuing the investigation.

The case came about an hour after a trio committed another armed home invasion 20 miles away in New Cassel.
