April 20, 2022 – Westchester County District Attorney Miriam E. Rocah announced that two Bronx residents were convicted after a jury trial and sentenced to state prison on charges stemming from a 2020 home invasion in Yonkers.

On April 15, 2022, Trejuan Deas, 26, was sentenced as a Second Violent Felony Offender to 16 years in state prison, with five years of post-release supervision, after being convicted of Burglary in the First Degree, two counts of Burglary in the Second Degree, Assault in the Second Degree, and Robbery in the Second Degree, all felonies.

Co-defendant Joshua Emanuel, 21, was sentenced on March 3, 2022, to 11 years in state prison, with five years of post-release supervision, after he was convicted of Burglary in the First Degree, two counts of Burglary in the Second Degree, Robbery in the Second Degree, and Tampering with Physical Evidence, all felonies.

On Dec. 18, 2020, at approximately 11:05 p.m., the defendants forced their way into a Yonkers home and committed multiple crimes against two separate victims inside the house. The female victim was able to covertly call 911, but before police arrived, Deas threw the 80-year-old male victim down a flight of stairs causing him to suffer physical injury. During the course of the burglary, the defendants stole a cell phone from the female victim, and Emanuel dismantled and hid the gun he used during the incident as police arrived.

Yonkers Police arrested Deas after he jumped out of a first-floor window and Emanuel as he exited the home. Yonkers Police conducted the subsequent investigation.

The case was before Judge Barry Warhit in Westchester County Court, and was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Cooper Gorrie and Renee Hassel.
