Peekskill Police arrested a Yonkers man in connection with a recent robbery at the Mobil gas station on Washington St.

On Oct. 16, at approximately 4 a.m., police officers responded to the station at 120 Washington St. and found a male employee who had suffered a facial laceration. Officers learned a male subject got involved in a verbal altercation with the employee and then slashed the employee’s face before forcibly stealing more than $1,000 from the cash register and fleeing on foot.

After getting a description of the assailant, within minutes officers attempted to stop a male subject matching the description on South St. The individual failed to stop and after a brief foot pursuit was detained.

The man, identified as Nelson Rosa, 35, was arrested and charged with robbery in the first degree, assault in the second degree, criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree, obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest. He was arraigned in Peekskill City Court.
