Arrest made in elderly Suffolk cashier's attack

Police say they caught the man who attacked a 91-year-old store clerk in East Northport last week.

Shaun Collins, 34, allegedly punched the cashier in the chest when she tried to stop him from robbing her drawer at a Rite Aid.

Police say Collins also robbed a Rite Aid in Miller Place in last month. There is no word on when he will be formally charged.

The cashier, Flo Critelli of Commack, finished her shift after the robbery.
