A Roosevelt teen was arrested Thursday in a May street robbery in which police said he and another teen held a machete to a juvenile.
Patrick Hood, 17, of 10 Hillman Place, was charged with first-degree robbery in connection with the incident, which took place on Carroll Street in Roosevelt just after 6 p.m. May 9, Nassau County police said.
Police said a 15-year-old was previously arrested and charged with first-degree robbery -- and said that suspect was arraigned in First District Court in Hempstead.
Police did not identify that defendant, stating he was a juvenile who had been "custodialized," but could not immediately say why he was arraigned in First District Court instead of Family Court.
Police said the 15-year-old had been arrested at a home on Locust Court not long after the robbery, after officers responding to the 911 call reporting the robbery used a "Find My Phone" application to track a cellphone they said was stolen by the pair.
The victim, who was a juvenile male, was not injured.
Hood was arrested Thursday night on Jerusalem Avenue in Uniondale after an investigation, police said. He is scheduled for arraignment Friday in First District Court.
