A victim had facial injuries after being threatened with a knife early Sunday morning, during a robbery for which police said they have only arrested one of the four assailants.

According to the Suffolk County Police Department, officers have arrested a homeless man in connection with the Coram crime, but are still searching for the other three suspects.

The incident began at about 12:45 a.m. on Sunday, when police said the four robbers, one of whom was armed with a knife, confronted the male victim on Middle Country Road, between Fife Drive and Erna Drive. Those suspects assaulted him, police said, and threatened him with the knife while stealing his leather coat and two diamond earrings.

The victim was treated for facial injuries at St. Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson and has since beenĀ released, police said.

A homeless man, 25-year-old Armad Johnson, was arrested the same day and charged with first-degree robbery, but police are still looking for the other three Johnson was allegedly working with.

Attorney information for Johnson was not immediately available and he could not be reached for comment.

Anyone with information about the unknown suspects in the armed robbery is asked to contact detectives at the SCPD’s 6th Squad atĀ 631-854-8652, or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 800-220-TIPS.
