STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - Police say a baby was held at gunpoint in a home invasion in Stamford and two suspects have been arrested.
Mikel Gjuraj and his alleged accomplice, whose name was withheld because he is a juvenile, were charged Saturday with home invasion, unlawful restraint, robbery, assault and other offenses.
Police say the unidentified resident was beaten by three armed men who then searched the apartment and forced him, his wife, 4-month old baby and two friends to get onto the floor.
Police say 1 of the robbers grabbed the child and threatened to shoot her if the victims didn't turn over money. The men fled with cash and jewelry.
Police are looking for the third suspect.
Gjuraj is being held on $750,000 bond. It wasn't known Tuesday morning if he is represented by a lawyer.

The cleanup has begun in some parts of Long Island while others continue to deal with flooding from heavy rain fall that began late Tuesday and intensified on Wednesday. Cars remain stranded after rain pounded the area. More than 13 inches of rain fell in Islip. The National Weather Service said the rain was the largest event on record for New York State in a 24-hour period.
