Sixth Squad detectives report the arrest of two Freeport men for an incident that occurred on Sunday, August 9, 2020 at 2:45 pm in Roslyn.
According to detectives, Christopher Vilca, 21, of 473 S. Long Beach Avenue and his brother, Jean Vilca-Alvites, 19, of the same address, while outside the Roslyn Hotel, 1221 Old Northern Boulevard, approached a 35 year old male victim, whom they had prior dealings with regarding the purchasing of sneakers and engaged him in a dispute. Vilca-Alvites motioned to the victim that he had a weapon in his waistband and demanded that he hand over cash or the sneakers he had with him in a bag.
