No bail for goons in ex-cop rob
A retired NYPD cop who was the victim of a sick home invasion suffered chest pains Thursday, after the two of the creeps who raided his house were arraigned for the crime.
The ex-lieutenant, 72, was hospitalized a day after Lance Jyrkinen and Shirnel Sobers were remanded by a Brooklyn Criminal Court judge on attempted murder and other charges, authorities said.
Jyrkinen, 20, Sobers, 25, and another man allegedly barged into the former lawman’s home in Marine Park at 5:30 a.m. Monday, pistol whipped and slashed him, and sexually assaulted his 71-yearold wife, prosecutors alleged.
The senior needed 40 stitches on his head, according to authorities.
Sobers and Jyrkinen were nabbed in the victim’s Honda Civic on their way into the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel late Monday night, cops said.
The lieutenant’s gun disappeared during the mayhem, and cops were looking into whether the robbers swiped
Sobers’ aunt, June Davis, watched the Wednesday arraignment from the gallery.
“That is not my child,” Davis said about the disheveled, dreadlock-sporting Sobers.
Police sources said investigators are looking at the possibility the invasion is linked to debts amassed by one of the couple’s children.
The lieutenant’s son was arrested twice last month for drug possession and criminal trespass in Manhattan. About six years ago, his mother called police after he repeatedly showed up at the couple’s home, banging on their door.
He is being treated as a witness to the crime, sources said.
Cops said the third suspect was seen in Union Square area Park shortly before the attack.
