“Diligent detective work by the Ardsley Police Department along with high-tech forensic assistance from my office resulted in the arrest and prosecution of these five defendants for committing a violent home invasion,” Westchester District Attorney Janet DiFiore said.
Richard G. David, 31 of New Rochelle, pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery, a felony.
Exander Rosado, 19 of Yonkers, Anibal Rosado, 20 of New Rochelle, and Pamela Zimba, 25 of New Rochelle, pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary, a felony.
Kadeedra Moore, 24 of New Rochelle, pleaded guilty to second-degree attempted burglary, a felony.
Officials say the Rosado brothers and Davis invaded a home on Bramblebrook Road, displayed a handgun and demanded cash from the house's occupants around 6 p.m. April 23.
The robbers sent two younger children upstairs to hide while they marched a father and his teenage son to a home office to open a safe, pistol-whipping them in the process, Ardsley police said. The robbers tied up the two men with duct tape before fleeing, the district attorney's office said.
Zimba, who used to work for the home owner, monitored the men inside while on the phone. Moore was waiting outside in the getaway vehicle.
The teenage son was able to free himself and call police after the attack, officials said. A police investigation led to the July 6 arrest of all but Davis. Davis was arrested three days later.
Both Rosados, David and Zimba face up to 25 years in prison. Moore faces seven years in prison.
Exander and Anibal Rosado are scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 29. Davis is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 5. Zimba is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 26. Moore is scheduled to be sentenced March 5.
