Police: Lynbrook Duo Beat Victim With Handgun

The two defendants were arrested in Lynbrook early Tuesday morning.

A Lynbrook man and woman were arrested early Tuesday morning in Lynbrook after allegedly beating a man with a handgun and stealing his gold chain.

According to Nassau County detectives, around 12:44 a.m., Shaquan Lewis, 29, and Arnetha Humphrey, 30, got into physical altercation with a 43-year-old male victim at their Atlantic Avenue residence.

The defendants repeatedly struck the victim about the body with a handgun, police said. After removing a gold chain from around the victim's neck, the defendants fled the scene in a white Hyundai.

Lynbrook police officers responded and a description of the defendants was broadcast, police said. The vehicle was observed and stopped by Lynbrook Police on Sunrise Highway.

The defendants were taken into custody without incident. A loaded 9 millimeter handgun was recovered from their vehicle. The victim's gold chain was also recovered.

The victim, who had been removed to a local hospital, was treated and released.

Both defendants were charged with robbery in the first degree and criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree. In addition, Lewis was charged with criminal use of a firearm in the first degree. They will be arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead on Tuesday.

The arrest information was supplied by the Nassau County Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

@matt hogan - why do you show a picture of a Nassau County police car when it was Lynbrook police who handled the call. Why not a picture of a Lynbook police car.

@Josh Hammel: The information came from the Nassau County Police. I am awaiting mugshots from the NCPD at this moment. Thanks for reaching out. -- Matthew Hogan Associate Regional Editor

Is this property a Section 8 property and who manages it? I'm hearing it's 158 Atlantic Ave.

@Mark reyes: Thanks for reaching out about the story, however, it is Patch policy to not disclose the address of anyone who has been arrested. -- Matthew Hogan Associate Regional Editor

Tommy Micc June 19, 2012 at 11:53 PM
@LRHLPARENT How about showing us some evidence to back up that claim
BILLYJEAN June 19, 2012 at 11:57 PM
Becker doesn't care, as long as the checks are coming in. It'll take something really bad to happen before anything is done. And Pat there kid is in our schools.

matt hogan step up and write the expose of this phony. The facts are indispitutable. please do something before someone gets hurt of killed.
Frank June 20, 2012 at 05:56 PM
Everybody loves section 8. Rent Checks from the State are always on time :-). Blame the greedy landlords... They filed the paperwork and "greased the wheels" so to speak, to get it approved. Welcome to Queens!
Dan Harper June 20, 2012 at 07:30 PM
It's about time Lynbrook realizes how damaging Becker is for their area. Constantly taking advantage of government money to line his pockets. Even more sickening is his brother is running for Congress, and he's a county legislator! So there's no way to go after Hilary when the family is protecting him. Becker is putting families at risk!
Lyndell June 20, 2012 at 09:54 PM
This is ridiculous. I can't believe this is happening in Lynbrook.
Tom June 20, 2012 at 11:26 PM
It would be very interesting to find out where these people reside. We have a good idea where Shaquan will be living soon.... Attica Attica Attica.
LYNBROOK92 CHAMPS June 21, 2012 at 02:53 AM
OK, lemme guess, lots of folks dont like Becker here and I agree. But there are still plenty of signs of his out there because people say "they know Lynbrook and look out for the residents. Well, they obviously are not. Its time for the RESIDENTS of Lynbrook to take their town back and fight back against all that is going on here. This is not the Lynbrook I grew up in. And just an FYI, I used Next Level RE in Lynbrook...... wonderful service. Just sayin
Echo Deep June 21, 2012 at 05:46 AM
Yep.. Right next to the Disabled American Veterans office. 158. She is a corrections officer too! When will greedy landlords wake up, especially in a town they themselves reside in? Incredible...
