Two men were arrested for pistol-whipping a Central Islip home invasion victim this week, Suffolk County police said.

Carlos Morales, 26, and 24-year-old Dawon Brown, both of Jamaica, were charged burglary, robbery, criminal use of a firearm and criminal possession of a weapon.

Third Squad detectives alleged the duo kicked in the rear door of house on East Walnut Street and demanded money from the victim shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Police said the duo jumped out of windows on the second floor in an attempt to flee when they realized officers had the house surrounded before they were taken into custody.

Bail for Morales and Brown was set at $150,000 bond or $100,000 cash. They are due back in court Friday.
