Posted

On the run after allegedly stealing clothes from the Hollister in Green Acres on Sept. 25, a Brooklyn man reportedly attacked Green Acres Mall security guards and tried to take an elderly woman’s car, Nassau County police said.

According to detectives, at around 2 p.m. Jushan Graham, 31, had attempted to leave Hollister with merchandise he had not paid for when mall security guards confronted him. Graham allegedly punched and bit the guards before running out of the mall, heading to the BJ’s parking lot where he allegedly pushed an elderly woman to the ground and attempted to take her car. Cops said he stopped when she screamed and continued to run on foot. Police later found Graham hiding in a bush nearby and placed him under arrest.

Graham was charged with second-degree robbery, two counts of third-degree assault, petit larceny and possession of burglar tools. He was arraigned on Sept. 26 at the First District Court in Hempstead.
