RIDGEWOOD — Two Brooklyn men were arrested in late March after they allegedly robbed another man at gunpoint in Ridgewood, the Queens district attorney said.
Omar Rosario, 20, and Lester Urena, 25, both of whom are from Brooklyn, were arraigned March 27 before Queens Criminal Court Judge Barry Kron on charges of robbery, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of stolen property, Queens DA Richard Brown said.
The defendants, who were held on $25,000 bail, will return to court April 9, the DA said.
On March 26, the two men were alleged to have approached another man at 71st Avenue and Fresh Pond Road in Ridgewood, pulled out a gun and demanded that he give them his T-Mobile cell phone, Brown said. They are also accused of stealing $500 from the victim as well as his car keys, the DA said.
