Mott Ave Mugger Arrested, Faces 25 Years In Jail
A Far Rockaway man has been arrested for allegedly mugging a man last month on Mott Avenue and Beach Channel Drive, police said.
Shawn Edmontson, 33, of Dickens Street, and another man walked up to the victim on February 6 at approximately 8:30 p.m. and demanded money and pressed a hard object into his side, according to police.
Edmontson then threw the victim to the ground and snatched his wallet. He has been charged with first degree robbery and could face a maximum of 25 years in jail if convicted. He was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court on April 5, a spokesperson for Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.
