A group of men broke into a residence in Cedarhurst early Friday morning and held up 12 people, forcing them to lie on the floor at gunpoint while robbing them, according to police.
At approximately 1:15 a.m., four or five black males wearing bandanas over their faces forcibly entered the home, police said.
According to police, two of the subjects displayed handguns. The men ordered the one female and 11 male victims to lay on the floor while they went through pockets and took cell phones, jewelry and an unknown amount of cash. More money and jewelry was removed from two safes belonging to the residents.
One victim suffered minor injuries after being kicked by one of the subjects, police said.
There is no further description of the subjects, who fled the scene in an unknown direction.
Detectives request that anyone with information regarding this crime should contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
