Suspect in Long Island Mall Robbery Attempt Held on $750K Bail
A suspect in a botched robbery and shooting that caused a panic at a crowded New York mall and injured a worker has been ordered held on $750,000 bail.
Oliver Lee, 21, of Queens, was arraigned Wednesday on robbery, assault, weapons, and other charges. He pleaded not guilty.
A message left seeking comment from the attorney representing Lee wasn't immediately returned.
