Brentwood Man Arrested for Burglary, Assault and Extortion

Press Releases

Suffolk County Police have arrested a man for burglarizing a residence, assaulting a man and extorting cash from the victim’s family last evening.

Bohemia, NY - July 26th, 2014 - Suffolk County Police have arrested a man for burglarizing a residence, assaulting a man and extorting cash from the victim’s family last evening.
 
A man was asleep in his bedroom in a Bohemia trailer park when he was attacked with a mallet, by a known suspect, causing a head injury to the victim at 8:45 p.m. The victim’s mother arrived at the residence and attempted to transport her son to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore. While en route to the hospital, the victim became ill, and the mother pulled her vehicle over to the side of the road, at which time a Highway Patrol unit that had been in the area arrived to assist. The officer requested an ambulance and the victim was transported via Sayville Community Ambulance to Southside Hospital.
 
During the assault at the victim’s residence, the suspect, Joseph Ferraro, 27, telephoned the father of the victim stating that he would further injure the son if the father did not comply with his demand for a large amount of cash. The father withdrew the cash from an ATM and then drove to Ferraro’s home, located at 26 Mindres Ave., Brentwood, where he delivered the money to Ferraro.
 
After further investigation, Fifth Squad detectives and Third Precinct police officers arrested Ferraro in front of his residence at 12:35 a.m. and charged him with two counts of Burglary 1st Degree, Assault 2nd Degree and Grand Larceny 2nd Degree for extortion. Ferraro is scheduled to be arraigned today at First District Court in Central Islip.
 
A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
