FRESH MEADOWS — Two teenagers were arrested last week after allegedly mugging another young man on a handball court for $5, police said.
Police said a 17−year−old and a 15−year−old were arrested in the Kissena Park Corridor last Thursday after allegedly holding up another teen with a knife, a baseball bat and a screwdriver.
Police said after demanding money from the victim shortly after 12 p.m., the two teens allegedly stole a total of $5 and fled the scene. The teenagers were arrested a short time later and charged with robbery, authorities said.
