East Meadow Armed Home Invasion Suspect Sought

Nassau County police are investigating an armed home invasion in which a man put a large fork to an elderly victim’s throat in East Meadow on Monday evening, authorities said.

An 87-year-old woman opened the back door of her Apple Lane home when a man with a large knife forced his way inside, placed a fork to her neck and demanded cash at 5:15 p.m., police said.

The assailant then confronted the victim’s 91-year-old husband and pushed him onto the bathroom floor, police said. The attacker stole cash, credit cards and jewelry before he fled the scene.

First Squad detectives request anyone with information regarding this incident to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.  All callers will remain anonymous.
