East Hampton Town Police arrested two men after police said they robbed a third man in East Hampton on Sunday night.
Jacob R. Carter, 23, of Montauk and Jonathan I. Pressley, 21, of Southampton each were charged at about midnight on Monday with second-degree robbery, a felony.
Police said they took $1,000 in cash from a 20-year-old East Hampton resident following a confrontation at someone else’s home on Three Mile Harbor Road. “The two confronted him. There was a struggle,” Town Police Detective Lieutenant Chris Anderson said on Monday.
Armed with a description of the vehicle the two men used to flee the scene, police responding to a 911 call found the car on Stephen Hands Path in East Hampton, according to a press release from the police department. Arraigned in East Hampton Town Justice Court on Monday, Mr. Carter posted $20,000 cash bail and was released, while Mr. Pressley was taken to the Suffolk County Jail in Riverside in lieu of $20,000 cash bail, according to Det. Lt. Anderson.
