INWOOD, NY — Three men were arrested after Nassau police said they robbed two teenage boys in Inwood on Tuesday.

Two teenagers were followed into Lawrence Station Deli on Bayview Avenue by three men — Kevin Cifuentes Quiej, 21, of Far Rockaway, Javier Sirmeno, 20, of Inwood, and Christian Leiva-Aguilar, 19, of Inwood — around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, police said.

Leiva-Aguilar began following the teens as they left the deli, police said. He asked them for money and then started chasing the boys while swinging a box cutter at them before grabbing a backpack off one of the teens, police said. Leiva-Aguilar took the backpack and got in a 2009 Nissan Rogue, which the trio drove away, police said.

Nassau officers found the three men and the Rogue and arrested the trio without further incident, police said.

All three men were charged with two counts of first-degree robbery and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Leiva-Aguilar was also charged with second-degree menacing and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

The three were scheduled for arraignment on Wednesday at First District Court, at 99 Main St., Hempstead.
