Police arrested the last two individuals of the trio suspected in the assault and robbery of a woman at an East Hills gas station Saturday, nearly three weeks after the Sept. 5 incident.

The trio consisted of Kayla Paden, 23; Victor Garrison Jr., 23;  and Kasheen Ali, 34, Nassau County police said.

Paden and Garrison were arrested Saturday, and Ali was arrested just a day after the incident, police said.

According to police, the victim, a 36-year-old woman, stopped at the gas station at 449 Glen Cove Road around 1:55 p.m. on Sept. 5. When she arrived, she asked a woman in a U-Haul, later identified as Paden, to move her truck forward so she could access the pump.

When asked, Paden allegedly knocked the victim to the ground. Afterward, two men came out of the U-Haul, later identified as Garrison and Ali, and began kicking and punching the victim, according to police. Paden then ripped a necklace off of the victim, they said.

The three individuals then fled the scene in the U-Haul, traveling westbound on the Long Island Expressway South Service Road, according to police.

Police said the victim refused medical attention at the scene.

All three individuals were charged with two counts of robbery and one count of assault, according to police.

Paden and Garrison were arraigned Sunday morning and both pleaded not guilty. Both had their bails set at $500 cash, according to court records.

Both Paden and Garrison appeared in court again Tuesday morning for an adjournment.

Ali was arraigned on Sept. 7 where he pled not guilty. He was released on non-monetary conditions. He is scheduled to appear in court again on Oct. 24 for a conference.
