STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. (PIX11) – Two more men have been arrested in connection with a violent home invasion on Staten Island last December that involved robbers allegedly pistol-whipping a woman and a 5-year-old girl, police said Tuesday.

Roland Knight and Luthman Sefu, both 31-year-old Staten Island residents, were arrested Tuesday and charged with burglary in connection with the Dec. 18 incident, according to the NYPD. Two other suspects in the case were arrested on Thursday, police said.

Knight and Sefu were allegedly among the four masked gunmen who stormed into a sleeping family’s home on Livingston Avenue in the dead of night. The robbery was captured on home security video.

The robbers stormed upstairs with flashlights, searching four bedrooms, and found two sleeping children, their mother and nanny, Marlene Jones.

“I was sleeping, then I heard the door kicked in. I jumped up and saw three men with guns pointed at me,” Jones recalled in an interview with PIX11 News in December.

Jones said she immediately thought about the safety of the 4-year-old boy and 5-year-old girl and began to pray. 

“They went to the little girl’s room, pulled her out from her bed, hit her in the face with the gun and then they took her in the mom’s room,” Jones said.  

With her husband away for the night, the 33-year-old mother, who wished to remain anonymous, said she was also pistol-whipped in the face.

“The minute he brought [my daughter] to my room … when she showed up with the black eye, I thought he could kill us,” the mother said.

The robbers left the home with only a cellphone, police said.
