Three Lynbrook teens have been arrested in connection with a robbery of another teen outside a house party in East Rockaway in late February, Nassau County police said.

One of the teens was arrested Sunday, the other two early Wednesday.

All three - John Clifford, 17, of Spencer Avenue; David Traversa, 17, of Leach Street; and, Andrew Siconolfi, 18, of Lloyd Avenue - were charged with second-degree robbery.

Traversa and Siconolfi were scheduled for arraignment Wednesday in First District Court in Hempstead. Clifford was previously arraigned, though details of his arraignment were not immediately available.

Police said the trio confronted a 19-year-old outside a party on Clinton Avenue on Feb. 20 at about 10:55 p.m. and "acted in concert" to forcibly rob him of cash - knocking him down and holding him on the ground, as they assaulted him with their fists and feet. The extent of the injuries suffered by the victim were not immediately clear on Wednesday.

It also was unclear how much money was taken.
