Local News, Crime

Cops arrested the man in Central Islip on Friday

Suffolk County Police say they arrested a parolee on Friday night after he attacked officer at a traffic stop in Central Islip.

According to police, the two officers were attacked during a routine traffic stop. Third Precinct Community Oriented Police Enforcement Officers Timothy Drake and Michael Cammarata pulled over a 1998 Lexus at the corner of Prospect Avenue and Willow Street around 6 p.m. The officers said that the vehicle had a clear equipment violation.

Following the stop, the two officers attempted to arrest the driver of the vehicle, 23-year-old Dwayne Murray of Coram. Murray allegedly was in possession of a loaded handgun and marijuana. Murray was on parole at the time of the incident.

As the officers attempted to arrest him, Murray began fighting with them and attempted to flee. He then managed to take a Taser from Officer Drake’s belt and tried to fire it at the officers. When the Taser didn’t work, the suspect threw it to the ground.

Multiple officers were called to the scene to attempt to arrest Murray. They were eventually able to arrest him, and he was taken to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. Officer Drake and Officer Cammarata were also treated at the hospital, and all three have since been released.

Murray is being charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon 2nd Degree, Robbery 3rd Degree, Menacing 2nd Degree, Resisting Arrest, and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana. He was on parole for Assault 1st Degree, and Armed Robbery.

Murray was arraigned at the First District Court in Central Islip on Saturday. Third Squad detectives are continuing their investigation of the incident.
