WESTBURY - A homeless man was arraigned Tuesday after allegedly attacking two police officers when they tried to arrest him in Westbury.

He has since been charged with two counts of second-degree assault, fourth-degree grand larceny, fourth-degree criminal mischief, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration in the second-degree.
The judge ordered $40,000 bail.
Cruz is next due in court June 6.
