Six suspects in Floyd home invasion waive felony hearing, case headed to grand jury

By WKTV News

FLOYD, N.Y. (WKTV) - Six suspects in a home invasion last week in Floyd all pleaded not-guilty on Friday in Town of Floyd Court to burglary charges.

Joseph N. Salerno, 21, of Frankfort; Daniel J. Matys, 23, of Utica; Chad R. Cherubin, 23, of Carrollton, Texas; Brandon M. Wilson, 20, of Utica; Travis J. Anderson, 21, of Utica; and Robert J. Reynolds, 26, of Oriskany are accused of invading a Rickmeyer Road mobile home, armed with guns and baseball bats and threatening the occupants with a gun, demanding money.

They are also accused of beating people inside the mobile home with baseball bats before fleeing the scene. Two victims were treated for minor injuries.

The six were supposed to have a felony hearing on Thursday, but they all waived it and in return, the prosecutor lowered bail for the six from $50,000 to $20,000.

Now, the case automatically goes to an Oneida County Grand Jury for possible indictment, or, formal charge.
