2 charged in Massapequa robbery

Two Amityville residents were arrested Saturday after Nassau County police said they robbed two teens at knifepoint in Massapequa.

The victims, aged 16 and 19, were walking together in the Massapequa Preserve at Lakeview and Boston avenues at 6:50 p.m. when they were approached by two suspects, police said.

One of the suspects, Aidan Boyle, 17, of Amityville, showed the victims a three-inch gravity knife and demanded that the 16-year-old victim give him his property, police said. The victim gave the suspect a black knapsack that contained a credit card and keys.

The other suspect, Boden Woelk, 20, also of Amityville, threatened to use physical force against the 19-year-old victim, who gave the suspect $10.

The two suspects left in a black Ford Crown Victoria, but after an investigation police found them at a Burger King on Sunrise Highway in Seaford, police said.

No one was reported injured.

Boyle and Woelk were charged with two counts of first-degree robbery, two counts of second-degree robbery. Boyle was also charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

The two were scheduled to be arraigned on Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead.
