NIAGARA FALLS – A 49-year-old woman and her 12-year-old son were roughed up by armed bandits who stole $660 in a home invasion early Saturday, police said.

The intruders, one wearing a bandanna over his face, entered the unlocked Ashland Avenue home just after 2:30 a.m. and demanded money. The victims, held at gunpoint, were pushed to the floor and threatened with death, police said. The bandits ransacked cabinets and searched through couch cushions before grabbing the money from the woman’s coat pocket. They also stole a cellphone, police added.
