East Patchogue, NY - May 5, 2014 - Suffolk County Police arrested two men for attempting to steal a cell phone from an East Patchogue man last night.
A 49-year-old Patchogue man called 911 at approximately 10:40 p.m. last night reporting that he was walking on Carmen Street in Patchogue and was approached by two males in a white Mitsubishi Galant. One of the males exited the vehicle and confronted the victim, pointing what appeared to be a black handgun at him, and demanding the victim’s cell phone. The victim refused and a brief altercation ensued. The suspect returned to the vehicle and fled. The victim did not suffer any injuries.
A short time later, Fifth Precinct Patrol Officers James Lennon and Brian Panuccio noticed a vehicle fitting the description while on patrol on Norton Street in Patchogue. Upon stopping the vehicle, the officers determined that the two men in the car were involved in the attempted robbery and placed them under arrest. The officers also recovered a black pellet gun which is believed to be the weapon used in the crime.
Andre Quick, 19 of Grove Avenue, Patchogue and Jared Hartley, 20, of Rose Avenue, Patchogue were each charged with Attempted Robbery 1st Degree and are being held at the Fifth Precinct. They will be arraigned this morning at First District Court in Central Islip.
The investigation is continuing and detectives are asking anyone who has any information to contact the Fifth Squad at 631-854-8552.
