Two arrested in Oceanside robbery

Two men were arrested early Monday shortly after they forced another man into an Oceanside residence, displayed weapons and robbed him of a prescription medication, Nassau County police said.

The victim, 22, was standing on Davison Avenue outside a house that was not his own shortly after midnight, when two men dragged him inside, displayed a stun gun and an expandable baton, rifled his pockets and took the medication before fleeing in a white Mercedes-Benz, police said.

A short time later, officers arrested Ben Atias, 25, of West Cortland Avenue in Oceanside, and Kyle McLaughlin, 25, of Curley Street in Long Beach. Both are charged with first-degree robbery, criminal possession of a controlled substance and fourth-degree possession of a dangerous weapon.

Both are scheduled to be arraigned Monday at First District Court, Hempstead.
