An armed home invasion suspect was overpowered by a victim, who held the gunman until police arrived to arrest him in Valley Stream early Tuesday morning, Nassau County police said.
The assailant forced his way into a Catherine Street home and demanded property from the victim, but a struggle ensued and the victim overpowered the suspect at 2:07 a.m., police said. A shot was fired during the struggle, but nobody was hit by the gunfire, police said.
The suspect was identified as Majestic Glover, 36, of Queens, who was found to be in possession of 14 forged $50 bills and 4 forged $20 bills, police said. He was charged with robbery, burglary, criminal use of a firearm, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a forged instrument.
He will be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead. Fifth Squad detectives are continuing the investigation.
