One Arrested After Man Mugged Outside Blue Collar Bar

Sep 18, 2012 4:52 PM

A 34-year-old man from Texas was arrested on Tuesday, September 11, after Southampton Town Police said he mugged a man outside of the Blue Collar Bar on County Road 39 in Southampton. The mugging occurred at about 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 8, according to police.

Police said Efrain Alvarez, 34, of San Antonio, Texas, was one of three men who chased the victim to the rear of the building next door, where they knocked him to the ground and beat him. The victim, who was not identified by police, suffered substantial bruising and lacerations but refused medical attention on the scene, officers said. One of the men stole $1,500 in cash from the victim’s pocket, according to police.

Detectives located and arrested Mr. Alvarez at about 8:46 p.m. He was temporarily living in Southampton while working a construction job. He was charged with second-degree robbery, a felony. Mr. Alvarez also had an immigration warrant issued against him by the Department of Homeland Security. He was held at the Suffolk County Jail in Riverside after failing to post a $20,000 bail.

When are our leaders going to STOP this criminal behavior in our Town????
Congrats on this arrest, however, we have to investigate job sites, home rentals
and the schools to find out what we have in our community -- and STOP all
the entitlements until we can secure our Town. It's time to enforce the Rule
of Law! I can't believe that they allow individuals to break our laws!

YEA! Lets build a HUGE fence around the Town so these people can't get in without showing ID!

I made my Aunt Sally based on the the line "to find out what we have in our community" which really rubbed me the wrong way. Do you not find it akin to the racist attitudes present in the 50's and 60's regarding minorities in the south?

As if no crime is ever commited by a legal US citizen. As if all crimes commited by hispanics are commited by illegal hispanics.

I don't have a black/white stance on illegal immigration. I'm not blind to the fact that there are people living ...more

Nature....What planet are you on? As soon as "they"=(anyone who is not here legally) jumped the fence, or swam the rio grand, or parachuted from a plane they become an instant FELON. Which means they have NO respect for OUR laws in OUR COUNTRY not theirs but OUR COUNTRY. We made laws for a reason. To protect our borders from INVASIONS like we are seeing. The constitution is being ignored by both Republicans and Democrates for VOTES! Read the constitution and then comment. While your at it read what ...more

So what about when all of those people came over from England and invaded the country which was occupied by native americans and "they" (settlers) stole and or otherwise occupied land from native americans? Is that OK because they are our ancestors? And don't tell me it doesn't count because it was so long ago because you are happy to cite the constitition which was created not long after these settlers invaded the country.

I never said illegal immigration is OK. I never said these ...more

NATURE....First of all if you research it,the vikings were here first. So I think we should divide the country half. Half Viking and half Indian. Or maybe in thirds one third to Italy since Columbus may have also discovered America first. Your point is rediculous. Its our country now until we get conqoured. But at the rate we are going we will soon be no more. People like you like to play games with words and laws until its too late. The only thing thats knocks sense into your type is when they ...more

Nature, you should have checked with Mr. Z -- no lynx allowed here.

Have a good weekend.
By PBR (4945), Southampton on Sep 14, 12 12:32 PM
I don't know what books you're reading but the Vikings never had any permanence in North America. They had a few temporary colonies in what is now Newfoundland and possibly as far west as Quebec but that's it. They were discouraged by the existence of the indigenous people that were already here, whom I guess we would refer to as eskimos who were not very friendly towards them-- with good reason.

arghhh so frustrating. The link was legit, but since it was to another news source it got booted. SH Press, can you AT LEAST post some sort of written policy regarding this so we know how to steer clear?

Steve:

I'll give you the fact that you are impassioned and you stand your ground, both good qualities.

Your argument is just as silly as mine - that's the whole point of it.
So what's your solution? What should the US of A do?

Don't hire illegals when they can mug and citizens out of money.When will they be beating and mugging women? Sorry to say that day will come.

Why was that comment removed? Why would someone be carrying around $1500 in cash. Let's think about it for a minute. Maybe they need to shine the light a little closer on where this went down.

I agree sometimes you see crimes like this from others, but with the Latinos there usually is more to the story than the common larceny like at the bank last week. Eastend 68 is most likely right.

Whaduhyuhno, he WAS a Mormon!
By highhatsize (4144), East Quogue on Sep 13, 12 11:37 PM
Tinfoil - since when did Mormon become a euphamism for hispanic?
By Nature (2966), Hampton Bays on Sep 14, 12 9:05 AM
Since newspapers auto-censor any reference to race or ethnicity if the context is pejorative, on the theory that such a reference "could cause unfair racial or ethnic stereotyping", my use of "Mormon" in place of "minority" was a derisive comment on this deplorable practice by paradoxically using an identifier which suggests probity.

Thanks, Press, but if I want my news censored I'll subscribe to "Granma" (Havana.)

hopefully the law doesn't drop the ball on this & then he is set free................
By coxie1 (36), southampton on Sep 14, 12 11:49 AM
After reading all the posts here I get the impression Y'all are not affected by the hispanics. They do not infringe on your ability to get your pay check. You do not have to adjust the price of the job you are bidding on because you are concerned at how high or LOW the bid the hispanic will give to the homeowner. Down here in the land of the watermellon farms I heard one owner of a big farm say "What can I do? They give me papers.. I hand it all over to my accountant. Let him deal with it!" ...more

Another crime comitted by another illegal. When will the laws on the bools be enforced. Deport every illegal that surfaces in the system. Anyboby have a problem with that? If so, please explain your reasoning. Gracias

they can start by watching the little junk 'motel' down west of th Lobster Inn ..whats that road called North Road ?? ..i hear the 78 YES SVENTY EIGHT kids go to Tuckahoe from that address.

takes TWO busloads to pick them all up !!! HOW CAN THE PRINCIPAL OF TUCKAHOE / HOW CAN THE POLICE let so many kids live in such HORRFYING CONDITIONS!! its way beyond the lie of using that address ... people should drive up there on NAY morning and WATCH the kids getting dropped off !!
By david h (405), southampton on Sep 17, 12 1:51 PM
The person arrested should be the contractor who hired him. Its time for the Press to idenitfy these contractors. Tell us which construction job he was working on.
By EastEnd68 (888), Westhampton on Sep 14, 12 6:08 PM
oh shut up already with that already....What is the difference if you report them they don't come to arrest them....as a business owner I would say something to the authorities if they cared, but they don't so why should I. I am not an ICE agent.If they have a drivers license and a bank account you would assume they are legal.how do they get a bank account without a SS card ??? I would love to know!

I believe BOA does not require SS numbers and is still giving credit cards out to illegals.
By Q333 (161), Southampton on Sep 14, 12 11:55 PM
Obtaining a randomized SS#, which may belong to a child who will one day be screwed when seeking a post secondary education, because they already have a "credit history".

Any other queries?
By Mr. Z (11550), North Sea on Sep 15, 12 3:48 AM
BofA does give checking accounts and credit cards to anyone that is legal in any country. They are an international bank.

Isn't it telling that the guy with something to say about everything has been predictably silent on the last 3 stories of this nature. This one, the bank robbery and the three amigos home invasion last week. Phil.... where you hiding bub?
