An Ann Street man was busted by Greenwich and New York City Police Thursday afternoon on charges he was involved with an armed home invasion robbery in New York.
The suspect's mother and her boyfriend also were arrested on charges they interfered with police by lying to investigators that the suspect wasn't home.
Around 7 p.m. Dec. 1, police went to the Ann Street residence in search of Sledge Frederick, 20, who was named in a New York City Police arrest warrant charging him with first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary, both felonies. Frederick's mother, identified as Darlene Brockenbaugh, 54, and her boyfriend, identified as Alfred Ingram, 66, of The Bronx, told police her son was a patient at Lincoln Hospital in The Bronx, NY, recuperating from a gunshot wound and was to be discharged later in the week.
When NYPD investigators found that Frederick already had been discharged, they and Greenwich police returned to the Ann Street residence. Ingram admitted that the couple "intentionally misled police" and "Frederick was in the apartment," according to a Greenwich Police report. Brockenbaugh also admitted to lying, according to the report.
Frederick was found by a NYPD detective trying to flee a second-floor apartment.
All three were charged with interfering with police. Frederick was charged with being a fugitive from justice and held in lieu of $500,000 bond. He was scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 2 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
Ingram and Brockenbaugh were given a Dec. 14 court date.
