Cops: Parolee Left Assault Victim on Southern State

A 38-year-old Bay Shore man was arrested Thursday, three days after he allegedly assaulted a woman and left her on the side of the Southern State Parkway in Suffolk County, State police said.

Investigators charged Antoine Smiley, a parolee, with first-degree robbery and second-degree assault.

State police said they received a 911 call on Wednesday from a motorist who saw an injured woman on the side of the parkway, near exit 37.

When Troopers arrived they found a “seriously injured female” who had been assaulted and robbed, police said in a news release. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital, police said.

After a three-day investigation, Smiley was apprehended by the US Marshal’s Regional Fugitive Task Force and later processed by State police. He is awaiting arraignment.

According to New York State records, Smiley was released to parole supervision on March 30 and had absconded.

Police said the investigation is continuing. Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call State police at 631-231-6389.

A police spokesman was not immediately available for comment.
