Mon, 05/06/2019 - 15:34
A home invasion occurred at 13 Norfolk Street in Springs in the early morning hours on Thursday.

Two men armed with guns tied up a man inside his house in Springs and demanded cash in the early morning hours on Thursday, East Hampton Town police said.

Detectives are investigating the home invasion, which occurred at 13 Norfolk Street at 2:58 a.m. The two men wore masks and hooded sweatshirts and had handguns, police said. They forced their way into the house through a locked basement door. 

"Richard Stevenson, 56, had his hands tied behind his back and was held at gunpoint while the men ransacked the home before fleeing the residence with unknown proceeds," police said in a press release. 

Mr. Stevenson was not hurt. He was able to free himself and call 911. 

Anyone with information has been asked to call the East Hampton Town Police Department at 631-537-7575. All calls will be kept confidential.

Correction: The address where the home invasion happened was Norfolk Street in Springs, not Norfolk Drive, as was first reported.
