ROCKAWAY — Three Far Rockaway men allegedly robbed an apartment and beat its occupants Saturday, then left a trail of blood that led police directly to where they were hiding.

Jahmar Jenkins, 22, of 57-15 Shore Front Pkwy.; Ottis Moore, 23, of 12-56 Central Ave.; and Lamont Smith, 23, of 57-07 Shore Front Pkwy., were charged with burglary and robbery following the incident that occurred at 57-07 Shore Front Pkwy.

According to the victims, at about 1 a.m. a heavyset black male wearing a ski mask knocked on the door to the apartment and barged in carrying a handgun and accompanied by Moore and Jenkins.

Two of the victims were told to get on the couch and robbed by the man in the mask, two others were taken into a bedroom and pistol-whipped by Moore and Jenkins, who said, “Where’s the stuff? Where’s the stuff?” while holding a silver pistol, the document said.

At one point, the man in the mask answered the door when a security guard knocked, the document said. The man in the mask said, “I’m gonna shoot you” before slamming the door shut, the document said.

When police arrived, they followed a trail of blood and dropped jewelry boxes down a stairwell to another apartment in the building, the document said. Inside, they found the three men, including Smith, who matched the description of the man in the mask, the document said.
