A Bellmore man was arrested at his home Thursday afternoon after Nassau County Police say he allegedly assaulted a victim he was showing items he had for sale.
According to detectives, Anthony
Pascullo, 22, invited a 28-year-old
male victim to his residence to view some items he had for sale.
When the victim refused
to purchase any merchandise the defendant struck him in the left arm
and left leg with a metal baseball bat.
Pascullo then allegedly demanded money and
the victim surrendered several hundred dollars. While still holding the
bat the defendant allegedly demanded more money and
the victim gave him a credit card and more cash.
The victim then fled
the scene and notified police. Seventh precinct police officers
responded and placed Pascullo into custody.
The victim was transported to an
area hospital where he was treated and released.
A metal baseball bat was recovered inside the residence and the
defendant was found in possession of cash and the victim’s credit card.
The defendant was charged with Robbery 1st Degree, Assault 2nd Degree and Criminal Possession of a Weapon 4th Degree. He will be arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead
