The two defendants were arrested in Lynbrook early Tuesday morning.

A Lynbrook man and woman were arrested early Tuesday morning in Lynbrook after allegedly beating a man with a handgun and stealing his gold chain.

According to Nassau County detectives, around 12:44 a.m., Shaquan Lewis, 29, and Arnetha Humphrey, 30, got into physical altercation with a 43-year-old male victim at their Atlantic Avenue residence.

The defendants repeatedly struck the victim about the body with a handgun, police said. After removing a gold chain from around the victim's neck, the defendants fled the scene in a white Hyundai.

Lynbrook police officers responded and a description of the defendants was broadcast, police said. The vehicle was observed and stopped by Lynbrook Police on Sunrise Highway.

The defendants were taken into custody without incident. A loaded 9 millimeter handgun was recovered from their vehicle. The victim's gold chain was also recovered.

The victim, who had been removed to a local hospital, was treated and released.

Both defendants were charged with robbery in the first degree and criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree. In addition, Lewis was charged with criminal use of a firearm in the first degree. They will be arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead on Tuesday.

The arrest information was supplied by the Nassau County Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.
