First Squad Detectives report the arrest of a Hicksville man for an Assault that occurred on Friday, April 14, 2023, at 1:58 pm in North Bellmore.
According to Detectives, Officers previously responded to a North Bellmore residence on Thursday, April 13, 2023, for a disturbance. Defendant Peter Rello, 30, of Hicksville had a verbal argument with a female victim, 29, that quickly escalated. Rello did shove and put his hands around the victim’s neck causing her difficulty breathing and putting her in fear of her well-being while she was holding their infant child. The defendant then proceeded to break items in the home before fleeing the scene. The victim immediately called 911.
On Friday, April 14, 2023, at 1:58 pm Police were notified and responded back to the North Bellmore residence where Defendant Rello had returned but attempted to flee the scene again. After a brief foot pursuit, a struggle ensued. Rello refused to comply with officer’s commands and became combative preventing officers from placing him under arrest. One Officer suffered injuries to his shoulder and arm and was transported to an area hospital for treatment.
Defendant Rello is charged with Assault 2nd Degree, Criminal Obstruction of Breathing 2nd Degree, Criminal Mischief 4th Degree and Endangering the Welfare of a Child. He will be arraigned on Saturday, April 15, 2023, at First District Court, Hempstead.
