According to detectives, the defendant Jarred Sowers, 21, of 17 Sycamore Avenue entered into the Windsor Parkway home of a 25 year old male victim through a side window and confronted him while sleeping in his basement apartment. Sowers displayed a black handgun and demanded the victim’s property. The victim complied and handed over an undetermined amount of US currency from his wallet along with car keys. The victim was then ordered to load his lap top computer, X-box game, two televisions, and a cell phone into his vehicle that was parked in the driveway.

With the assistance of the Nassau County Police Canine Unit and the Nassau County Police Bureau of Special Operations Unit Sowers was located at his home and placed into police custody.
