Police: Armed intruders ransack Westbury home

Four armed men stormed a Westbury house Friday, terrorizing and robbing four people inside, including two children, police say.



According to investigators, an 11-year-old girl answered the door at a Dover Street home -- then a man with a gun forced himself inside.



Three other masked men followed him in, at least one of whom was armed with a knife.



The knife-wielding man held the blade to a 10-year-old girl's neck, according to investigators.



The other victims were a 45-year-old female and a 35-year-old male, police say.



Police say another intruder demanded money in Spanish, tied up the man and cut him.



The men ransacked the house and stole $1,700, police say.



Police say all four intruders were Hispanic males. They all wore black clothing and were around 5 feet, 6 inches tall and between 160 and 170 pounds.



Anyone with information is asked to call Nassau police at 1-800-244-TIPS.
