Armed Bandits Turn Baldwin Party Into Holdup

A house party in Baldwin turned into a holdup early Sunday morning when four to six men armed with guns and wearing ski masks crashed the get together and robbed those in attendance, say Nassau County police.

First Squad detectives say 20 to 40 people were at a party at a home on Forest Avenue when four to six suspects, all armed with handguns, entered the residence through the front door around 2:50 a.m. Dec. 13 and ordered them all to lie on the floor and hand over their valuables.

A single gunshot was fired inside the home during the robbery, say detectives, and four victims suffered lacerations and abrasions when the unwelcome assailants struck them with their weapons and fists. A 34-year-old man was transported to an area hospital and treated for a head laceration before being released.

Police describe all the suspects as black men wearing ski masks and dark hoodies. The perpetrators fled the scene through the rear door with an unknown amount of U.S. currency, assorted jewelry, a handbag, cell phone, jacket and assorted credit cards.
