HEMPSTEAD -

There were new charges Saturday morning for a man allegedly involved with a home invasion in Hempstead.

Anthony Dickson of Brooklyn was arrested Friday night after police say he and Devon Leake entered a home on Eagle Avenue on Aug. 3.

The men pointed guns at a 49-year-old man inside, forced him to the ground and demanded money.

Police say they took off when the victim said he didn't have cash.   

Leake and the alleged getaway driver, Cody Hernandez of Islip Terrace, were arrested last week.
