A Great Neck man wanted in a March robbery was arrested by Nassau County police and charged after being turned over Sunday by the NYPD, who had arrested him on an unrelated charge.

Bjorn Brodsky, 28, of 12 Crampton Ave., was charged with first-degree robbery in connection with the March 19 incident, police said.

Police said that, in that incident, Brodsky drove to a home on Maxwell Avenue in Oyster Bay, asking a 19-year-old acquaintance if he could "talk to him." Police said the 19-year-old entered the four-door sedan driven by Brodsky to find two other men already inside and said that Brodsky then threatened the teen with "a hypodermic needle," demanding he empty his pockets. The victim then handed over his wallet and was then "pushed out of the parked vehicle," police said.

The teen was not injured.

Police are still searching for the other two men involved.

Brodsky faces arraignment in First District Court in Hempstead on Monday.
