3 charged in Lakeview robbery, beating

Three Lakeview men are charged with robbery after one of them beat another man and then took his cellphone Wednesday outside a delicatessen, Nassau County police said.

Reginald Summers, 44, of 405 Champlain Ave., Terence Cunningham, 26, of 413 Jefferson Ave., and Volney Milfort, 26, of 84 Tanglewood Rd., are charged with second-degree robbery after a 30-year-old man was punched outside the deli, at 1290 Woodfield Rd., at about 9:56 p.m., police said.

Police said all four men were inside the Lakeview deli when a verbal confrontation began. Summers grabbed the victim by the jacket, pulling him outside, with Cunningham and Milfort following, police said.

When the victim tried to call police on his cellphone, Summers punched him in the face and about the head, knocking him to the ground, police said. Summers also took the victim's cellphone, police said.

The three men then went back inside the deli, and when they left, police said, Summers threw the cellphone at the victim.

Fourth Precinct officers arrived and arrested Summers, Cunningham and Milfort.

Personnel from Nassau County Police Ambulance treated the victim at the scene for an abrasion to his right eye and contusions and swelling to the back of his head, police said.

Summers, Cunningham and Milfort are scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead.
