A Mill Neck man was arrested in Great Neck Estates Tuesday after breaking into multiple cars and scuffling with a victim inside a garage, according to Nassau County police.
Police say between 4:30 a.m. and 5:20 a.m., Yannick Reboh, 18, broke into four vehicles parked in separate driveways on Ascot Ridge Road— including a Mercedes Benz, a 2004 Audi, a 2002 BMW and a Chrysler minivan.
A GPS unit, credit card, assorted change and a Red Bull energy drink was removed from the vehicles by Reboh, according to police.
Just after 5:20 a.m., Reboh entered a garage and removed two bottles of alcohol but was confronted one of the victims, according to police, who said a struggle ensued and the victim was able to grab a gym bag Reboh was carrying.
Police say Reboh then fled the scene and returned a short time later trying to retrieve the gym bag which contained proceeds from the crimes. He was unsuccessful and fled on foot.
