Nassau County Police Second Squad detectives arrested Thomas Corrow, 30, of Brooklyn on April 27 in connection with a robbery that occurred on February 16, 2015 in Hicksville.
According to detectives, two males, one possibly Hispanic and the other possibly white, entered Wall Street Gold Buyers on West Old Country Road, acting as if they wanted to sell gold. The owner, a 55-year-old female, was then confronted by one of the subjects who simulated that he had a gun under his arm and demanded gold and money. As the victim attempted to flee the store, the subject pistol whipped her in the head. After a brief struggle the victim was able to leave the store and call out for help.
The subjects, who gained access to over $1,000 in cash and a Michael Kors watch, fled the store and were last seen entering a black SUV that was parked on the corner and then left heading westbound on Old Country Road. The victim sustained minor injuries to her head and refused medical attention.
Corrow was charged with two counts of first degree robbery, second degree robbery third degree possession of a weapon and first degree criminal use of a firearm. He was arraigned in First District Court, Hempstead.
