1 arrested, 1 sought in NCC campus robbery

A South Floral Park man was arrested Thursday and charged with robbing an 18-year-old man earlier this week in front of the Nassau Community College bookstore in East Garden City, Nassau police said.

Brian Wint, 20, of 22 Arthur Ave., was charged with second-degree robbery.

Police said a second suspect is still being sought.

The robbery occurred Monday at 5:25 p.m., when police said the two assailants approached the victim, punched him, then pushed him to the ground, taking cash before fleeing south on Duncan Avenue in a brown Nissan Maxima.

Police did not disclose how much money was stolen.

Wint was arraigned Friday and held pending a $15,000 bond or $7,500 cash bail.
