6 arrested in Woodbury home invasion, robbery
WOODBURY, NY (WABC) -- Six men are under arrest for a terrifying home invasion and armed robbery in Nassau County.
It happened Friday afternoon at a home on Orchard Drive in Woodbury.
A 26-year-old woman answered her doorbell ringing to find a man holding a bouquet of flowers.
When she opened the door, one of the suspects pointed a gun at her and forced her to lie on the floor in the hallway.
Three other men, one armed with a gun and another with a taser, got out of a nearby van and entered the home.
One of the men demanded jewelry and money from a 61-year-old woman.
She was led to an upstairs bedroom where she was duct taped around her wrists and ankles.
An 18-year-old woman, who was also at home at the time, locked herself inside.
Officers quickly arrived and saw the suspects running out of the home. They got their hands on $103,000 in jewelry and about $5,000 in cash. But since the suspects were caught minutes later, the family got everything back.
23-year-old Michael Mohammed, 31-year-old Randolph Chase, and 32-year-old Glen Campbell were arrested on the grounds of the Woodbury Country Club shortly after the robbery.
Following an investigation, police later arrested 24-year-old Goutan Persaud, 29-year-old Aadam Yusuf, and 27-year-old Jose Fuertes.
All six men are now facing charges of Robbery 1st Degree, Burglary 1st Degree, Criminal Use of a Firearm 1st Degree and Conspiracy 4th Degree.
They will be arraigned in Hempstead on Sunday.
Two vehicles, a 2000 Honda van and a 2008 Mercedes-Benz, used by the defendants were impounded.
The investigation is continuing.
