Nassau County police are investigating an armed home invasion in which a trio held up a card game in Massapequa and pistol whipped a 48-year-old victim over the weekend, authorities said.

Three men armed with handguns entered a Margaretta Avenue apartment and ordered 11 men who were playing a card game to the ground at 2:30 a.m. Saturday, police said.

The trio stole the property and cash before they fled on foot eastbound on Oakley Avenue. The victim who was assaulted was treated for non-life threatening injuries to his head.

Seventh Squad detectives ask anyone with information about this crime to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
