Robbery Squad detectives reported the details of two arrests for a robbery that occurred in Hicksville on Tuesday, March 20 at 11:52 a.m.
According to detectives, Remick Menjivar, 18, of Freeport, approached a male victim, 26, who was in the driveway at his Hicksville residence, produced a handgun and demanded the victim’s keys to his 2006 Infinity. The victim complied and the defendant drove off in the victim’s vehicle, said police. At the time of the robbery, police said the victim observed Edwin Flores, 20, of Hicksville, near his home, standing outside of a 2011 Toyota Corolla and looking around nervously. Both vehicles then fled the scene at the same time, said police.

Hicksville resident Venkata Sravani Kollu, a medical biology master’s student at LIU Post, is being featured in a series of advertisements as part of Long Island University’s rebranding campaign.
On Jan. 1, Long Island University rebranded itself as LIU. The names of LIU’s six campuses received shorter designations, uniting them under the new LIU brand and extending their reach in an increasingly digital world. The C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University is now LIU Post and the university’s other five locations are LIU Brooklyn, LIU Brentwood, LIU Riverhead, LIU Hudson at Rockland and LIU Hudson at Westchester.
Four Hicksville runners, with the help of friends, family and the local community, recently raised more than $16,000 to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Holy Trinity grad Alexis Tobin and Hicksville High School alums Meagan Doyle, Kerri O’Connor and Keira McCarthy organized several fundraising events in the area before running 13.1 miles at Walt Disney World on Jan. 7 for Team in Training (TNT), a Leukemia & Lymphoma Society program that helps athletes train and raise money for blood cancer.
“Coming to a place like this builds self-esteem,” executive director Tom Bruno said in an interview last Friday. He cited the recreation program and Power Hour as just two elements of the club that do just that.
If Holy Trinity grad and Westbury native Ronnie Cameron receives a call from a National Football League general manager in late April, his road to the pros will certainly be one less traveled.
Cameron, who recently earned an information technology MBA, began his football career playing with friends in front of Park Avenue School in New Cassel and as a member of Mineola’s pee-wee program as a 7-year-old, yet described his younger self as more student than athlete.
On the eve of a vote that could shut down four police precincts in Nassau County and convert them to community policing centers, officers with the Police Benevolent Association (PBA) once again presented their case against the proposal.
In a meeting with editors of Anton Community Newspapers, PBA President James Carver and his associates claimed that the proposed closures would result in less services at the community centers than what existed at precinct stationhouses. They also disputed claims made by Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Dale that crime has decreased in Nassau County and in general, they made the case that precinct stationhouses are essential to combating crime and performing needed services.
An enthusiastic crowd of over 200 people gathered at the Book Revue in the village of Huntington on a cold January afternoon, to attend author Scott Starkey’s “book talk” of his debut novel, How to Beat the Bully Without Really Trying.
The Book Revue is one of the largest independent bookstores in the country and is considered a renowned cultural and social center. They regularly offer a schedule of distinguished author readings and celebrity appearances. Unfortunately, the first run of hard copies was sold out at the signing; however, digital copies are available via Nook and Kindle.
Starkey is currently a fifth-grade teacher at East Street School in Hicksville. He has worked in the district for the past 16 years, and as the Head Coach for the Varsity Boys Soccer team led his players to win the New York State Championship this year.
