A Valley Stream teenager was being held on $200,000 bond or $100,000 cash bail after being charged in connection with the armed robbery of a restaurant deliveryman Saturday night in the village, Nassau County police said.
There were no injuries.
According to detectives, the male victim, 25, works for a local Chinese restaurant and was making a delivery near Washington Avenue and Lyon Street when Joseph Kamari, 16, of North Central Avenue, approached him.
Police said Kamari displayed a handgun, reached into the victim’s jacket pocket, removed a small zippered bag containing an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the scene on foot.
A subsequent investigation led to Kamari’s arrest.
Kamari was arraigned on first-degree robbery and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon charges at First District Court in Hempstead, a court spokesman said. He is due back in court on Wednesday.
