MANHASSET, N.Y. (TCD) -- A 43-year-old man stands accused of pointing a gun at a 6-year-old boy who went to retrieve a goody bag that he and his sister accidentally dropped off at the wrong address over the weekend.
According to a news release from the Nassau County Police Department, on Saturday, Oct. 28, at approximately 7:25 p.m., a 42-year-old mother drove her three children and nephew to 138 Rockcrest Road to drop off the Halloween goody bag at her daughter's friend's house. At the home, the woman's 10-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son reportedly walked up to the house, rang the doorbell, and left the candy goody bag on the porch.
Police said the family drove down the block when the daughter realized they dropped off the candy at the wrong home. They reportedly went back to 138 Rockcrest Road to retrieve the goody bag.
The 6-year-old boy got out of the vehicle and approached the front door when Michael Wen allegedly "stepped out of the house and pointed a black handgun at the victim's head."
