Two men are facing charges, and a third suspect is still on the loose, after Nassau County police said they used a black handgun to rob a man as he was walking home in Lakeview early Friday.

Jeremy Freeman, 18, of Harrison Street, Lakeview, is charged with first-degree robbery and resisting arrest, and Tylik Wilson, 18, of Grant Avenue, West Hempstead, is charged with first-degree robbery and third-degree assault.

The 22-year-old victim was walking home heading south on Cleveland Street near Glenwood Road about 12:15 a.m. Friday when he was approached by three men, one of whom displayed a black handgun in his waistband, police said.
