Armed Home Invasion In Springs




East Hampton Town police are asking for the public’s help in providing information about a home invasion that happened in Springs, in which two armed men tied up their victim, and demanded cash.

“The two men, armed with handguns, and wearing masks and hooded sweatshirts, forced entry into the home through a locked basement door,” the police said in a press release. The burglary occurred the afternoon of April 4, just before 3 PM, at 13 Norfolk Street.

The resident, a 56-year-old man, had his hands bound behind his back by the intruders. The two ransacked the house, and fled with an unknown amount of “proceeds,” according to police.

The victim was able to free himself and call police. Captain Chris Anderson has asked that anyone with any information about the incident to call 631-537-7575. He said all calls would be kept confidential.
