An arrest is made in last week’s deadly home invasion in Brooklyn.

And the man in custody, 27-year-old Dwayne Blackwoood, is facing murder charges.

Waldiman Thompson, 91, and his 100-year-old wife Ethlin were attacked and tied up inside their Bedford-Stuyvesant home on October 11.

She managed to free herself and call for help, but he went into cardiac arrest and later died. His funeral was held Friday.

The NYPD had said they had identified two persons of interest in the case.
