A Brooklyn man was arraigned Tuesday on charges related to a February carjacking in Manhasset when a woman was forced out of her car and threatened by three men, the Nassau District Attorney's Office said.

Brian Perales, 22, pleaded not guilty to first-degree robbery charges at First District Court in Hempstead, court documents said. 

On Feb. 7, the 48-year-old woman was parking her 2024 Mercedes-Benz in a lot at 981 Northern Blvd. when she was approached by two unknown men.

The men grabbed the woman from the vehicle, pushed her onto the ground and threatened her with a firearm, police said.

They then took the woman’s car key, and one of the men entered her car. A second man entered an Acura four-door sedan, operated by a third man. Both vehicles fled west on Northern Boulevard, court documents said.

Perales was arrested and charged on Monday, police said. The other men are still at large, and an investigation is ongoing. 

Bail was set at $250,000 cash, $500,000 bond, or $1.25 million partially secured bond.

Perales is due back in court on May 20.
