The 75-year-old man suffered a broken arm and his wife had serious head injuries.
Hall says the contractor, Gary Pilavdjian (pill-AH'-vee-un) of New Rochelle, had done some minor work at the couples' house and "set this whole thing up."
All six men were charged with burglary; no lawyer was listed for Pilavdjian at Town Court.
Police are investigating whether the men might have carried out other similar attacks.
