Two people, one an East Rockaway teenager, face charges in connection to a robbery last month on Rockville Centre, Nassau County Police announced.
Thomas Scanlan, 17, of East Rockaway, and Christopher Pilato, 25, of Oceanside, were each charged with two counts of robbery after police said they robbed a 22-year-old they reportedly knew.
On Dec. 7, police said the 22-year-old victim met an acquaintance at 2:50 p.m. on Shellbank Place and had a brief conversation before two other men pull up in a car. The victim ran away but was caught behind a Shellbank Place home, where officials said he was punched and robbed of an iPhone and cash. Read the original story here.
Scanlan was arraigned Dec. 9 and will be back in court later this month. Pilato will be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead.
