Nassau County police say they have arrested a gun-toting burglary suspect after he allegedly broke into a North Valley Stream home and then confronted a female resident at gunpoint when she arrived home, according to an April 8 news release.
Kendal K. Haywood, 25, of Brooklyn, was arrested Monday in Newark, NJ, and charged with first-degree and second-degree burglary, as well as second-degree attempted burglary.
The charges stem from a Nov. 1, 2013 incident at a home on Law Street in North Valley Stream, when police said a 35-year-old woman who lives in the house arrived home and found a man standing in her kitchen. Cops said he pointed a gun at her and demanded she come into the home, but she turned around and ran to a neighbor’s house.
As she was running, she turned around and saw two other men leaving her home and walk north along Law Street, where they jumped into a minivan, police said after the burglary.
Police did not say what was taken from the home and did not say what led them to suspect Haywood.
Haywood now also faces a second-degree bail jumping charge after cops said he failed to return to court when he was arrested in December 2013 on an attempted burglary charge.
Nassau detectives said US Marshals and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents assisted in the investigation.
He was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
