An armed home invader in Valley Stream fought with his victim Tuesday but was overpowered, even though a round was discharged from his gun during the struggle, Nassau police said.
The victim held down Majestic S. Glover, 36, of Jamaica, Queens, who had broken into the Catherine Street home about 2 a.m., and waited for officers to arrive, authorities said. While the gun went off, the bullet did not strike anyone, police said.
Officers arrested Glover without incident and after searching him, found $780 in counterfeit money — 14 $50 bills and four $20 bills, police said.
Glover, of 160th Street, is expected to be arraigned Wednesday on two counts of first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, first-degree criminal use of a firearm, two counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, first-degree reckless endangerment and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
