Police: Man injured in Bayport home invasion

Police say a violent home invasion sent one Bayport resident to the hospital Friday night.



They say the incident happened on Cinque Lane around 9:00 p.m.



Officials say a resident was walking into his home when two men pushed their way inside and stole an undetermined amount of cash.



They say the 33-year-old victim fell down the stairs and was struck in the head. He was taken to Stony Brook University Hospital for a broken arm and leg.



Residents say they never expected a home invasion in their town.



"It really bothers me because the people are good here," said Thomas Franzese, of Bayport.



Authorities are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
