The Third Squad reports the arrest of a Massachusetts man on Aug. 25 at 1:20 p.m. in Garden City.
According to detectives, officers responded to a four-vehicle auto accident at Old Country Road and Clinton Road. Upon police arrival, it was determined that 35-year-old Raymond Sojo of Worcester, MA, while driving at this location, collided with two vehicles stopped at the intersection. Due to the collision, one of the vehicles was pushed into the intersection and collided with the rear passenger side of a FedEx truck. Sojo then exited his vehicle and entered the FedEx truck, attempting to flee the scene by using physical force and verbal threats towards the driver.
Responding officers attempted to place Sojo under arrest and render medical aid for his injuries sustained during the accident. Sojo refused to comply with the officers. Police were then forced to utilize an ECD (taser) to subdue him. He was taken into custody and transported to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries.
Upon further investigation, a loaded Taurus G2C handgun was recovered from defendant Sojo’s vehicle.
The two female operators of the vehicles struck by the defendant, 80 years old and 49 years old, were both transported to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries. No other injuries were reported.
Sojo is charged with second-degree attempted robbery, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, second-degree obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest. He was arraigned when it was medically practical.
