Mineola Men Arrested For Assault

Two Mineola men were arrested for assault in Massapequa on Friday, Dec. 20 at 11:32 p.m.

 

According to detectives, Mineola residents Nicolas Russi, 19 and Santiago Orrego, 18, were driving and exited a 1999 Audi at a traffic light located at Louden Street and Sunrise Highway so they could confront a 20 and 28-year-old man who were driving a 2005

Cadillac. Police said the four were involved in verbal dispute while driving.

 

Orrego hit the 28-year-old man in the right side of his head with a hammer, causing a large laceration, police said. Orrego then hit the 20-year-old victim twice in the back of his head after the victim attempted to tackle him.

 

Orrego and Russi then fled the scene in their car, according to police. The two victims were transported in a Nassau County ambulance and treated for their injuries at a local nearby hospital.

 

Orrego and Russi surrendered themselves to the Third Precinct a short time later. Seventh Squad detectives responded and placed both defendants into custody without incident. 

 

The two were charged with two counts of second-degree assault.

The debate over New York State Common Core standards continues, with students from the Mineola School District showing a mild resistance to the exams.

 

According to the New York State Allies for Public Education, Mineola had some of the lowest numbers, with eight students opting out of the English Language Arts test. However, not a single Mineola student missed the math test. In East Williston, the opt out rates were 75 students in ELA and 60 in math.

The New York Cosmos hosted the Mineola Athletic Association’s Soccer Club recently for its penultimate fall 2014 home game. More than 140 members of the MAA soccer club and their families came out on a chilly October evening to show their love of the game. Twenty-two Mineola boys and girls had the honor of escorting the New York Cosmos and Ottawa Fury players onto the field in the traditional “Walk of Champions.”

 

The Mineola spirit must have inspired the home team, as spectators enjoyed the exciting 2-1 Cosmos victory, with the game-winning goal coming in stoppage time.


As a current member of the Mineola High School Varsity Soccer team, senior, Catherine Cunningham has been dominating the scoring for the Mustangs.  She has 12 goals and two assists in the last seven games. 

 

In her last week of play alone, she amassed six goals in just three games. As a captain for the last two years, Cunningham has been an All-Conference and All-Class player, leading her team to two victories so far this season.
