Two men from Baldwin have been arrested for burglary, the Nassau County Police Department reported today. The alleged crime was said to have taken place on Monday, Feb. 11, at 11:20 a.m. in Plainview.
According to NCPD detectives, officers from the Second Precinct responded to a call regarding a suspicious vehicle on Crestwood Drive. When the police arrived they were told the defendants in the case — Jahvis P. Williams, 19, of Jefferson Street and Erwin Ulysse, 20, of Matheron Avenue — were dropped off on by an unknown male driving a Nissan sedan. Williams and Ulysse were reportedly seen entering the rear yard of a house on Felice Lane in Plainview. According to Maureen Roach, NCPD public information officer, police entered the yard of the home and discovered that Williams was inside the house and was opening the rear door to allow Ulysse entrance. Police said the suspects fled when they were discovered, but were located a short time later and placed under arrest. Two of the arresting officers suffered injuries to their knees and back while placing the defendants under arrest. Both officers were treated and released from a local hospital. The driver of the Nissan sedan has not been located at this time.
Both defendants are charged with burglary in the first degree and the possession of burglary tools. Ulysse is also charged with Burglary in the second degree. The suspects will be arraigned on Feb. 12 at First District Court in Hempstead.
