CORONA — A South Ozone Park man faced felony robbery charges after allegedly holding up two men at gunpoint last month, the Queens district attorney’s office said.
Around 12:45 a.m. Aug. 31 near the LeFrak City apartments, Coshaun Bryant allegedly accosted two men, cocked an automatic pistol and pointed it at them, saying, “Give my what you have” and “I’ll shoot you right now,” a criminal complaint filed by the DA’s office said.
Bryant allegedly took a cell phone, an Apple iPhone and a wallet from the two men before hitting one of the victims with the butt of the gun and saying, “I’ll shoot you, next time you better be strapped,” before fleeing the scene, the complaint said.
Bryant was arraigned Sept. 2 and held in lieu of $35,000 bail, the DA’s office said. His next court date is Sept. 22.
