Hempstead Woman Charged in Roosevelt Field Mall Armed Robbery

A 42-year-old Hempstead woman was arrested Thursday for allegedly robbing another woman at gunpoint in a Roosevelt Field Mall parking lot in late May, Nassau County police said.

Lisa Berry was charged with first-degree robbery and criminal use of a firearm stemming from the May 26 incident, police said.

Berry allegedly approached a 25-year-old woman who had just completed her shift at the mall and demanded money while threatening the victim with a black handgun, police said. The woman handed over $110, police said. Berry allegedly fled through a nearby parking garage.

Berry was located Thursday night on Fulton Avenue in Hempstead and placed under arrest, police said.

She is scheduled to be arraigned Friday at First District Court in Hempstead.
