    Four men were arrested and three others are wanted by police after investigators say they terrorized a quadriplegic man over the course of several months.

    On February 24, shortly after 2 a.m., police say Kyle Krosnodomskie, 18, Mohamed Abdelfatah, 20, Mark Halcomb Jr., 19, and Dominic Juliano, 18, broke into the home of a 47-year-old disabled man in Medford, New Jersey.

    While Krosnodomskie and Abdelfatah allegedly intended to rob the victim, police say Juliano and Halcomb also conspired to kill him. Juliano was armed with a knife and tried to kill the man as he slept in his wheelchair, according to investigators. Police say his accomplices stopped him however and they fled the scene.

    Police say Halcomb and Juliano returned to the home on May 4, around 2 a.m. along with 19-year-old Andrey Lesyuk. The three suspects allegedly tried to burglarize the home but fled after discovering the victim was awake.

    On May 7, shortly before 3 a.m., police say Halcomb and Lesyuk broke into the home once again along with 19-year-old Marcello Ferreira and 20-year-old Alfred Rizzo. Police say the four suspects stole a safe containing jewelry, knives and personal documents.

    After a five month investigation that began with the first alleged break-in, police say they discovered that Halcomb had orchestrated all three break-ins and recruited the six other suspects to commit the crimes. On July 18, Halcomb, of Mt. Laurel, NJ and Juliano, also of Mt. Laurel, were both arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit murder, armed robbery, burglary and other related offenses. Halcomb was lodged in Burlington County Jail in lieu of $855,000 bail. Juliano was also lodged in Burlington County Jail in lieu of $800,000 bail.

    Krosnodomskie, also of Mt. Laurel, was arrested in Ocean City, Maryland and is awaiting an extradition hearing. Rizzo, of Moorestown, NJ, was charged and released. Police are still searching for Abdelfatah, of Bellmawr, as well as Lesyuk and Ferreira, both of Philadelphia.
