Three New York men accused of holding a Queen Anne Road restaurant owner at gunpoint have been indicted on kidnapping and robbery charges, northjersey.com reported Monday.
The men went to Gateway of India around noon on May 19 to collect a debt from the owner, police told Patch after the arrest. Mahavir Singh, 43, Zorawar Singh, 34, and Leo Sullivan, 28, were arrested shortly after the holdup.
Police said the trio put a gun to the owner’s head and chest while demanding payment, but escaped without the cash.
Mahavir Singh, of Miller Place, N.Y., had entered into a business deal with the owner and loaned him money, according to police. Teaneck detectives and Suffolk County police first arrested Singh and authorities said they found the gun used in the crime along with other weapons.
Zorawar Singh and Sullivan, both of Babylon N.Y., were charged a short time later.
All three were released in June after posting bail, according to jail records.
