A 25-year-old Bed-Stuy man was charged with holding up three Long Island electronics stores.
Nassau Police arrested KaJuan Crawley, who lives on Halsey Street near Throop avenue, following a hold up at a Radio Shack at 264 Sunrise Highway in Rockville Centre on Thursday, June 21st.
According to Nassau police, the three men came into the store at about 2:14 p.m. One of the men took out a long barreled revolver and announced that the shop was being held up. The employees were forced to the back of the store while the men loaded up with cell phones, gaming systems iPads and other electronics.
The men ran out with the goods and jumped into an SUV with Florida plates and drove off. A witness tried to follow them in his car, but was prevented by doing so by Crawley along with Jamar Parker, 28, of Hempstead, who were in a second car that blocked the witnesses’ path, police said.
