The investigation into the North Valley Stream home invasion, which occurred Nov. 1, was assisted by the U.S. Custom Service and the U.S. Marshals Service, Nassau police said.

In the North Valley Stream case, police reported then that a 35-year-old woman arriving at her Law Street home entered a side door and was confronted by a man in her kitchen who pointed a gun at her. The man ordered her to come into the house, but instead the woman fled to a neighbor's house. She was not injured.

Police said the woman saw the man and two other men leave her house and walk northbound on Law Street. She then saw a minivan pick them up and continue driving north on Law Street.

Haywood is to be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
