Garden City police have confirmed the arrest of Artie Jackson, the suspect wanted in connection with the occupied home invasion on Third Street Nov. 8.

Jackson 46, of Hempstead, was arrested in Hempstead Sunday evening; Garden City detectives were part of the "apprehension effort."

Patch obtained a mug shot of Jackson, considered "armed and dangerous" Sunday.

On Nov. 8, four Garden City homes within the Central section were burglarized. One was an occupied burglary where a weapon was displayed and shots fired into the ceiling. No one was injured but police state Jackson fled with many personal belongings, including the family's car which was later recovered in Hempstead.

The prior evening, on Nov. 7, a similar occupied burglary occurred within the Cathedral Gardens section of the Village of Hempstead.

Garden City Yogi is entirely correct. This women was my next door neighbor's best friend. I had the honor of meeting her as well. She is beautiful, kind, smart and generous. This man is a monster. After he beat and raped her for four hours, he slit her throat and left her for dead. He didn't leave the home right away, instead he made himself a sandwich and ate Oreos in her kitchen. It is testament to her inner strength that she lived through this ordeal. She has a long, long journey toward recovery. I am confident that once stable (as we are never truly healed , just changed, by this type of trauma), she will use this experience to help others. I can not reveal her employment history because I want to help maintain her privacy. But I will say that this story is probably being muted at a very high level because of her own very high level of responsibility.
