Police: RVC Teen Punches, Robs Teen Near Fantasy Theater

A 16-year-old village resident was charged with third-degree robbery.

A 17 year old standing in the alley by the Fantasy Movie Theater on Park Avenue was punched in the face then robbed of his cell phone by a 16-year-old Rockville Centre resident on Wednesday night, police said.

According to detectives, the 17-year-old boy was standing in the alley by the Fantasy Theater holding his LG cell phone when a 16-year-old RVC resident approached him. The 16 year old punched the victim several times, grabbed his cell phone, and fled on foot westbound in the alley.

No injuries were reported. The suspect was arrested a short time later at his home.

The 16 year old was charged with third-degree robbery and was arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead on Thursday.

Interesting suggestion. However serious crimes are prosecuted at the County and State level taking them out of the local part time courts!

Ted: I don't think these parents will be embarrassed.

Kevin we're talking about public urination and public intoxication. These crimes are within the purview of the local justices and I have no confidence that they can hear these cases with the necessary degree of impartiality. this is especially true if the defendants coming before them also happen to be their neighbors or the children of their friends.

So you all have covered the grammatical errors, public urination, illegal teen drinking, poor parenting, when to water the lawn, poor government, suing the village, etc etc. The article was about the kid who was punched and had his cell phone stolen.

Correction. The article was about the kid who was punched and had his cell phone stolen by another kid from the West End.
