JACKSON HEIGHTS — A Corona man was arraigned last week for reportedly assaulting a man while he was trying to steal his car, the Queens district attorney’s office said.
Juan Cabas, 27, of 41st Avenue, was charged with assault, possession of burglar’s tools and unauthorized use of a vehicle May 23, the DA’s office said.
Cabas was observed by the owner of a 2001 Toyota Highlander in front of a house at 31st Avenue and 84th Street inside the car with the driver’s-side door open, the criminal complaint said.
When the owner approached the suspect, Cabas allegedly punched him in the chest, according to the criminal complaint.
The police were called to the scene and an officer found four screwdrivers, a hammer and a sock in Cabas’ backpack, the criminal complaint said.
