A Queens man was arrested Monday for allegedly robbing a woman and forcing her to commit a sex act in Inwood, Nassau County police said.

Alok Parekh, 30, of Glen Oaks, was charged with criminal sexual act, robbery, grand larceny and resisting arrest.

Fourth Squad detectives alleged that he met the 30-year-old victim at a pre-arranged location and drove around in his Smart Car, but when the victim wanted to get out, Parekh took her cell phone and demanded that she withdraw cash from an ATM, which she did.

“The defendant then forced the victim to engage in a sexual performance and then demanded more money from the ATM,” police said in a news release.

After she complied, the victim was released, police said. The suspect told the victim that her phone and driver’s license were in a bag on the ground, but they were not, police said.

The suspect was apprehended outside of his home, but as they began to take him into custody, he ran toward the house, tried to slam a door into an officer and violently swung his arms and twisted his body while refusing verbal commands, police said.

Parekh will be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
