A Uniondale man has been arrested for robbing two teens at gunpoint in Merrick on Friday, Nassau County police said.
A pair of 16-year-old boys were walking south on Williams Street when they were approached by two suspects, one of whom asked if he could use the victim’s phone, while the second suspect grabbed the victim from behind at 2:30 p.m., police said.
The first suspect then pointed a handgun at the victim’s face and demanded his money and property, police said. Both victims complied, and the suspects fled on bicycles heading north on Williams Street.
Matthew Delvalle, of Uniondale, was later arrested and charged with four counts of robbery. He will be arraigned Saturday at First District Court in Hempstead.
