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.
