A Levittown man was arrested Friday for robbing another man at knifepoint, Nassau County police said.
According to Eighth Squad detectives, Shaquan Hinson, 22, and a 20-year-old male victim were at the handball court on Wantagh Avenue and Sprucewood Drive when Hinson produced a pocketknife, put it to the victim’s face and demanded his wallet.
The victim complied and Hinson then fled the scene with the wallet on a bicycle, detectives said. Subsequent investigations led to his apprehension in the vicinity a short time later. There were no injuries reported.
Hinson is charged with first-degree robbery and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and will be arraigned Saturday in First District Court in Hempstead.
