Three people have been indicted in connection with what authorities say was a home invasion in Glenville earlier this year.
Two of the three appeared in Schenectady County Court on Monday, asking that bail be set in their cases. Bail for one was set at $30,000, the other at $10,000.
The charges stem from May 30 break-in on Orlinda Avenue in Glenville, prosecutor William Sanderson said later. The incident was not random, he said — one of the suspects knew the target.
The attackers fled without getting anything, as the victim fought them off, Sanderson said. He declined to say if the attackers sought anything specific, or to discuss their alleged motivations.
Charged are Damon Mosley, 24, and Najahliek Edmunds, 17, both of the New York City area, and Edward Storms, 20, of Scotia. They each face felony counts of burglary, attempted robbery and assault. They have pleaded not guilty.
The incident began, Sanderson said, as Storms set up a meeting with the victim at the victim’s home. When the meeting time came, though, Storms didn’t arrive — Mosley and Edmunds did, Sanderson said.
“It appears that they were working together,” he said.
When the victim refused to let Mosley and Edmunds in, they forced their way in, Sanderson said. One man hit the victim in the arm with a BB gun, causing a cut, the other hit the victim in the head with a fist, ripping an earring out of his ear. Finally, the two men fled, Sanderson said.
The three suspects were arrested in July and August. Bail for Storms was set at $30,000 cash or $45,000 bond. Edmunds’ bail was set Monday at $10,000 cash or $50,000 bond, officials said. Mosley was being held Monday without bail.
