JACKSON HEIGHTS — A knife-wielding thief was arrested after he swiped $30 from a victim in an early-morning robbery this past weekend, police said.
Brian Guerrero, 22, and an unidentified assailant approached the victim at 1:45 a.m. on Sunday near 74th Street and 35th Avenue, according to the criminal complaint.
Guerrero placed the knife against the victim and repeatedly demanded money, before going into the victim's pockets and taking money on his own, the complaint said.
He fled with $30 in cash and was arrested soon after, police said.
The other suspect he was with was not apprehended, according to the criminal complaint.
Guerrero was charged with robbery and arraigned in Queens Criminal Court. He was being held in lieu of $25,000 cash or $50,000 bond.
A call to his lawyer was not returned.
