Uniondale Home Invasion Gunmen Convicted
Two Queens men were convicted Friday of pistol-whipping a man during a Uniondale home invasion 16 months ago.
A Nassau County jury found Theodore Jerry, 36, and Christopher Robinson, 35, guilty of robbery, burglary, assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
Prosecutors said that a man and woman were in a Liberty Street home when the pair, both armed with handguns, broke into a bedroom the victims were in, where Jerry and Robinson demanded money on Dec. 27, 2011.
Robinson hit the male victim in the back of the head with a Smith & Wesson semi-automatic .40-caliber handgun, causing a laceration before the duo stole $1,100 in cash and a cell phone.
The gunmen forced the victims on the floor and covered them with a mattress and box spring before they fled the scene.
The male victim’s sister called 911 and officers apprehended Jerry and Robinson after they ran from the house.
They face up to 25 years in prison when they’re sentenced April 3.
