Cops arrested a screwdriver wielding, road-raging Long Islander in a robbery Monday in Levittown.
According to detectives, Matthew Mulqueen, 33, was driving aggressively in Levittown when another driver pulled over to avoid him. Cops say Mulqueen stopped his car and approached the other driver before pressing a screwdriver against his neck and putting him in a chokehold. Mulqueen then took the victim’s keys and pushed him to the ground, cops say. When a witness pulled over to assist, cops say Mulqueen threw the keys into a wooded area and left the scene.
Mulqueen eventually surrendered to police and placed under arrest. He is being charged with first-degree robbery, second-degree menacing, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and second-degree reckless endangerment.
