A Riverhead man was robbed at gunpoint at his home early Saturday morning after a man and woman knocked on his door and demanded money, Riverhead Police said.
When the victim told the couple he was broke, the man pointed a handgun at the victim’s forehead and told him to empty his pockets. The victim later told investigators that the woman, who appeared to be intoxicated, entered his home but did not say anything. The couple made off with a single $100 bill. After they left, the victim ran out of the house and chased after their vehicle, which he said was a dark-colored sedan. The car was last seen traveling westbound on Sound Avenue. No arrests have been made.
The man was described as black, approximately 30 years old, 5-foot-8 and clean shaven. The woman was described as Latina, in her early 20s with long hair tied back in a ponytail. She was wearing blue jeans and a black shirt.
