Elmont Home Invasion Suspect Charged

A Brooklyn man has been arrested for allegedly committing a home invasion in Elmont over the weekend, Nassau County police said.

A 48-year-old woman answered a knock at the door of her Batchelder Street home when Syed Adnan Shafquat pushed his way in, knocking her to the ground at 10:25 p.m. Friday, police said.

Fifth Squad detectives alleged the 30-year-old suspect, who authorities described as an associate of the victims’ daughter, stole jewelry and an iPad before fleeing the scene.

Shafquat was taken into custody at his home without incident, police said. He was charged with first-degree burglary.
