Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - LOCAL NEWS -

GREENPORT >> Three men are fac­ing felony charges of bur­glary and as­sault fol­low­ing a home in­va­sion late Mon­day night that left a man and woman in­jured, author­i­ties said.

Columbia County Sher­iff David P. Bartlett said sus­pects, who he said were found hid­ing nearby at 8 a.m. Tues­day, were iden­ti­fied as Derek Peeters, 23, of Main Street, Philmont; John Day, 21, of state Route 9G, Greenport; and an 18-year-old male from Chatham whose name was not re­leased. Each was charged with one count of bur­glary, a felony and two counts of as­sault, a mis­de­meanor.

Bartlett said deputies re­ceived a re­port at about 11:50 p.m. Tues­day about a pos­si­ble home in­va­sion on Mid­dle Road in Greenport.

Deputies de­ter­mined that the two vic­tims had been in bed, sleep­ing, when three men en­tered the res­i­dence, turned off the power and as­saulted the home own­ers be­fore flee­ing on foot. Deputies and state po­lice later found the three sus­pects, who they said made ad­mis­sions as to their in­volve­ment in the home in­va­sion.

The male vic­tim was taken by Greenport Res­cue Squad to Columbia Memo­rial Hos­pi­tal, where he was treated for a cut to his arm. The woman was treated by Greenport Res­cue Squad at the scene, but de­clined trans­port to the hos­pi­tal.

All three sus­pects were ar­raigned in Greenport Town Court be­fore the Town Jus­tice Frances Abitable and sent to the Columbia County Jail without bail pend­ing a later court ap­pear­ance.
