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.
