GREENBURGH, N.Y. - A Bronx man who cops say tied up an Edgemont couple and robbed them has returned to Westchester to answer to multiple charges stemming from the alleged 2009 home invasion.
Victor Hernandez, 26, was arraigned Wednesday on one count of first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary, as well as one count of second-degree robbery and second-degree burglary; all felonies.
Hernandez faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted of the top counts of the indictments.
Greenburgh Police said that in December 2009, Hernandez -- armed with a knife -- and a pair of unidentified accomplices forced their way into a Fort Hill home in the Edgemont section of town. The group reportedly tied up the husband and wife, who were home at the time, before making off with several stolen items, including a laptop computer, cops said.
After a lengthy investigation by the Greenburgh Police and the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office, police said they located the stolen computer in the Bronx. There, they learned that Hernandez was already in jail in Michigan on unrelated charges.
Hernandez waived extradition to New York and was remanded to the Westchester County Jail on Wednesday. His next scheduled court appearance is May 29 at Westchester County Court in White Plains.
