Two men have been arrested after they burglarized a Uniondale home and menaced an occupant with a crowbar, Nassau County police said.

Vitelio Cornejo, 34, of Howard Avenue in Roosevelt, and Marvin A. Segovia-Garcia, 33, of Thorne Avenue in Hempstead were arraigned Thursday in First District Court in Hempstead on charges of burglary in the first-degree, police said.

Segovia-Garcia was also charged with assault and menacing, police said.

Both men were ordered held on $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond. They are due back in court Monday.

The two men got into the home on Walton Avenue about 9:45 a.m. Wednesday by damaging the rear door, police said.

Cornejo was “held at the scene by one of the residents of the home,” police said in a news release.

Segovia-Garcia, “carrying a crowbar, advanced toward a second resident before fleeing on foot northbound toward Hempstead Turnpike,” the news release said. He was found hiding in a wooded area on James Doolittle Boulevard and arrested, police said.

Police declined to provide other details.
