A Hempstead man arrested Thursday was accused of using a wooden club to help two others beat an occupant in his relative's house, Nassau police said.

Davon Butler, 28, and his accomplices were unsatisfied with the way the 54-year-old occupant was taking care of their relative's Spring Street house in Roosevelt, police said.

So the three kicked in the door of the Roosevelt house at 4:25 a.m. July 5 and attacked the occupant, sending him to the hospital with a concussion, bruises and lacerations, police said.

Butler, captured at his 66 Henry St. home by First Precinct detectives and the fugitive squad, was charged with second-degree assault and third-degree burglary. He is expected to be arraigned Friday.

Police said Daryle McClenic, 26, of 2592 Chernuca Ave. in Merrick, was arrested July 6 and arraigned the next day on second-degree assault and two counts of first-degree burglary. Then on Sept. 2, Jefferson Sherrod, 37, also of 66 Henry St., was arrested and arraigned on second-degree assault and second-degree burglary, police said.
