A Nassau County man faces a litany of felony charges after allegedly burglarizing a home and trying to steal multiple vehicles, including a patrol car that he crashed while trying to flee police on Thursday night, county police said. Four people, including a police officer, were injured.

Nicholas Corrow, 34, of Valley Stream, is charged with multiple offenses, including burglary, robbery, attempted robbery, grand larceny, attempted grand larceny, criminal possession of a weapon, menacing, criminal mischief and assault, according to a criminal complaint.

At around 9:10 p.m. Thursday, Corrow first entered his ex-girlfriend’s home on Loring Road in Levittown without her permission and stole her purse containing her car keys and nine credit cards, according to a criminal complaint. He tried to steal her car but was unsuccessful.

He then fled south on Loring Road toward Hempstead Turnpike and attempted to carjack other vehicles, police said. At the intersection of Hempstead Turnpike and Wolcott Avenue, he threatened two separate motorists with a knife, demanding they hand over their car keys. At least one of them feared for their life, according to the criminal complaint.

He also terrorized another motorist at a 7-Eleven at 2901 Hempstead Turnpike, ordering her to get out of the car while holding a knife, the complaint said.  

At that location, a Nassau County cop intervened.

Corrow was “erratic and combative” and refused to comply with the officer’s orders, according to a police release. The officer fired his taser but it didn't stop Corrow, police said.

Corrow managed to take off in the cop's patrol car westbound on Hempstead Turnpike while dragging the officer roughly 20 feet, police said.

He smashed into another vehicle at the intersection of North Bellmore Road, leaving three occupants with injuries. Corrow fled the scene on foot and police were able to arrest him, they said.

Police said the officer, who according to the complaint suffered lacerations to his right elbow and right knee, was treated for his injuries at a hospital and released. The criminal complaint said the occupants of the car Corrow hit suffered injuries from back pain, to leg and shoulder pain.

According to police, Corrow was on probation for a March 18 arrest on a grand larceny charge. The case is still pending, public records indicate.

Corrow was arraigned and pleaded not guilty Friday at First District Court and was represented by the Legal Aid Society of Nassau County. They could not be reached for comment.

Bail was set at $60,000 cash or $120,000 insured bond, according to court records.
