Teens arrested in Elmont street robbery

Two teens were arrested and charged with a brazen daylight robbery after they stole a set of headphones from a teen using them Tuesday on a street in Elmont, police said.

Sonsharray S. Fair, 18, of 132 Vermont St., Cypress Hills, Brooklyn, and Domonique May, 16, of 149 Louis Ave., Elmont, were each charged with second-degree robbery and face arraignment Wednesday in First District Court in Hempstead.

Nassau County police said the two teens approached a 17-year-old near the corner of Pelham Street and Hoeffner Avenue just before 12:30 p.m. Tuesday and said Fair removed the set of $400 headphones from the teen -- taking them and walking away. Police said that when the teen protested, Fair "threatened him, putting him in fear of his safety."

The boy reported the robbery, and Fair and May were located about three hours later in Hendrickson Park, police said.

Police said they were arrested "without incident."
