Three men, armed with a handgun, entered a Woodsburgh home on Thursday night, tied up three people inside and stole jewelry and electronics before fleeing in the homeowner’s vehicle, according to police.
At about 11:30 p.m., the subjects went into the Wood Lane South residence through an unlocked front door, police said. They found the 34-year-old homeowner upstairs and demanded money and jewelry. The subjects also found a 20-year-old female housekeeper in the basement.
The intruders then tied up the man and housekeeper’s hands and feet up with neckties, according to police. Shortly after, the female homeowner returned home and was also tied up.
The subjects searched the home and fled in the homeowner’s gray Mercedes SUV GL450 in an unknown direction with assorted jewelry and electronics.
The homeowner notified police. No injures were reported.
The victims describe the intruders as black men in their mid 30’s. The first subject is described as 6 foot 3 inches and 185 pounds and wearing a black ski mask, dark workpants, dark shirt and brown Timberland boots.
