LAUREL / Fourth arrest in abduction

A fourth person has been arrested in the abduction of a Mattituck man in a botched attempt to get back a stolen all-terrain vehicle, Southold Town police said Wednesday.

Anthony Infantolino, 18, was recently arraigned on second-degree robbery, second-degree unlawful imprisonment and third-degree assault in Southold Town Justice Court, police said Wednesday.

Authorities charge that he and three others abducted an 18-year-old Mattituck man from the Empire Gas Station on Route 25 in Laurel at about 1 p.m. on Sept. 1. The four believed he had stolen an ATV from them, police said.

The victim was taken to various places, beaten up by a fifth suspect and released in Riverhead, police said, with two black eyes and bruises.

The other suspects were Elizabeth Lingerfelt-Bucalo, 53, of Jamesport; her son, Conor Lingerfelt, 17, of Jamesport; and Philip Trentacoste, 18, of Aquebogue.
