ROOSEVELT, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say six masked armed robbers ransacked a Long Island home after they tied up two residents and shut them in a closet.

Nassau County police say it happened at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at a home in Roosevelt.

Newsday (https://nwsdy.li/1WKUnmQ ) reports that one suspect approached one of the residents who was in his outdoor shed and forced him at gunpoint into the house.

Police say the other five suspects were inside with the man’s 51-year-old father.

The suspects ordered the victims to the basement, tied them up and put them in the closet.

After the victims eventually freed themselves, they discovered that the house had been ransacked and called police.

Police say the bandits made off with a cellphone and debit card.
