A Long Island Homeowner Points His Gun At Him Because He Was On His Lawn

‘Get the F$#* off my lawn!’ Long Island homeowner pointed gun at a little boy, say cops.

Police say he confessed. In English.

A Long Island man was arrested last night at his $2 million house on Rockcrest Road in the tony Strathmore section of Manhasset, N.Y., accused of threatening a 10-year-old boy with a gun in his face.

An Assistant District Attorney told Judge Geoffrey Prime this morning that Michael Yifan Wen, 43, burst out the front door of his house and chased the boy across the grass. The boy had just retrieved a bag of Halloween candy off the doorstep that he’d left there by mistake, thinking the home belonged to a friend.

The Assistant DA, quoting Wen, told the judge the defendant said to the boy: “Get the fuck off my lawn!” before allegedly pointing a gun in the child’s face.

Wen owns the house where this happened, according to public records.

Another adult told 6th Precinct Police she saw the whole thing and provided the Supporting Deposition as a witness to secure Wen’s arrest.

Wen was case number 16 on the calendar in the Sunday Nassau County arraignments court. He appeared alone in the courtroom, in handcuffs.

It was Wen’s first contact with the criminal justice system, the Assistant DA told Judge Prime.

The press was waiting for him in the hall. His attorney escorted him to the Probation Office so he could register for his court ordered psychiatric screening and avoid contact with reporters.

News 12 had a ringside seat in the second row of the courtroom with cameras ready to roll as the Court Clerk announced case after case after case.

And then, it was Wen — with a Mandarin interpreter to translate the proceedings for him.

Wen pleaded Not Guilty to two Misdemeanor charges of Menacing with a Weapon under N.Y. Penal Law 120.14(1) and Child Endangerment under Penal Law 260.10(1).

Judge Prime issued orders of protection for the boy and the witness. The order requires Wen to stay away from both parties and to surrender his gun to the Nassau County Police Department until the whole criminal case is resolved.

The gun was not evidently loaded, based on the charges.

Wen is due back in court in 2 weeks on Nov. 13, 2023, with a private attorney.
