An Elmont man, still in jail after being shot by security during a failed bank robbery, now has been charged with another bank robbery that occurred two years ago, police said.

On Thursday, Lashawn Pierre, 21, was arraigned on the new robbery charge, which dates to Dec. 14, 2014, Nassau police said in a statement.

The defendant, along with another male suspect, demanded cash from the Chase Bank on Franklin Avenue in Franklin Square.

Seven employees and three customers were in the bank; no injuries were reported, the police said.

After they received an unknown sum of money, both men fled through the bank’s back door and crossed the creek bed, headed toward Arley Court, the police said.

In January, Pierre was ordered held without bail after a security guard shot him four times during what authorities called an attempted holdup of a Chase Bank branch in Franklin Square.

That case is ongoing. The Legal Aid Society of Nassau County, which represents Pierre, typically does not comment as a matter of policy.

Anyone with information about the crimes should call 800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
