Nassau County police are investigating a Roslyn Heights home invasion in which a woman was accosted early Saturday morning, authorities said.

Four men entered a Sherwood Lane home through a side door and demanded money from a 63-year-old woman, who one of the suspects threatened while another held her on the ground and ripped a gold chain from her neck at 12:40 a.m., police said.

One of the other suspects stole cash from the victim’s pocketbook before they fled the scene, police said.

The victim’s 66-year-old husband, 66, was sleeping in a different part of the home at the time. There were no reported injuries.
