Collier men arrested in connection to violent home invasion

NAPLES, Fla. Two men were arrested Friday for their alleged involvement in a violent home invasion, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies responded to a home at 9042 Shenandoah Circle regarding a possible robbery just before noon. When they arrived, the victim told deputies his brother, Jonathan Kaplan, 24, Joshua Brodowsky, 26, and third man entered his home, then burst into his bedroom, deputies said.

Kaplan put the victim in a headlock and shoved him to the ground. As one of the men held him down, Kaplan and the other man ransacked his room for guns and the victim’s medications, according to the sheriff’s office.

The men found the victim’s AR-15 and escaped in a car parked in the driveway.

The victim’s parents came home shortly after and called the sheriff’s office.

Kaplan and Brodowsky are in custody facing charges of grand theft, battery and criminal mischief. Kaplan is being held on a $7,000 bond while Brodowsky has a $9,000 bond.

The third suspect is still at large.
