Three men have been arrested in connection with a home invasion attempt that took place in Elmont on Friday morning.

Nassau County police say that a 54-year-old resident was awoken by the doorbell in his Kirkman Avenue home around 6 a.m. on Friday. As he went to answer the door he heard a loud bang as two of the suspects attempted to break into his house. He was able to hold the door closed and keep the would-be invaders out.

One of the men was armed with a rifle and threatened to use the weapon, however the victim continued to hold the door closed and kept the masked invaders out. The suspects then fled toward Meacham Avenue in a silver Honda driven by a third man. The victim was not shot or injured during the incident.

Police say they have now identified and arrested the three men. Nazir Babury, 20, of Elmont, Jason Mifsud, 36, of Woodmere and Dujon Ellis, 22, of Laurelton are being charged with burglary and criminal use of a firearm.

Babury and Mifsud are also being charged in connection with another home burglary that took place in Baldwin on Wednesday. Police say that a rifle was stolen during that robbery.

Babury is also being charged with reckless endangerment after another incident that took place on Friday, during which he fired the rifle at a 22-year-old man in Woodsburgh during an argument.

This incident also comes after 11 home invasions that took place in Suffolk County over a four-week span. A total of six arrests have been made in connection with those home invasions, which took place in towns throughout Suffolk, including Mastic, North Lindenhurst, Dix Hills, Huntington and Coram.

Police have not said whether these three men are connected with the Suffolk invasions, which are still being investigated.
The three men were scheduled for arraignment on Sunday.
