A Hempstead man surrendered to detectives Monday after finding his picture being circulated on wanted posters and cops are now looking for his accomplice after the two allegedly committed a violent home invasion in Freeport, Nassau County police said.

Abram Owens, 32, will be arraigned Jan. 14 on robbery, assault, burglary, weapons, probation violation and unlicensed driving charges. He turned himself in Monday after a friend told him that his picture was being circulated by police through a Crime Stoppers advisory.

Investigators said Owens and another man, who has not yet been arrested, forced their way into a home on Rutland Road in Freeport last April. Inside the home, a 21-year-old woman and her 22-year-old female friend tried to confront the assailants.

Owens, who detectives said was armed with a gun, clocked the 21-year-old woman in the face with the weapon, causing the revolver to fire a shot into her leg.

Cops said the accomplice shouted out “You’re not supposed to shoot her,” before he took off from the house.

Owens, who was left alone with the women, allegedly forced them upstairs at gunpoint and snatched their cell phones. Police said he also grabbed the house phone before fleeing the scene.

Owens will be arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead.
