A 19-year-old man was arrested in connection with a convoluted incident that ended with an alleged hit-and-run in a Long Island parking lot that injured a cop helping a stabbing victim, Nassau County Police announced Friday.
The Nassau County police officer suffered minor injuries after the events unfolded in Farmingdale in the early hours of Saturday morning that started when police responded to a report of a stabbing.
Around 2:45 a.m., police were called to the lounge on Conklin Street for a disturbance. On arrival they found a man with slash wounds to his neck.
But when they tried to help him, he ran away toward a municipal parking lot, where he collapsed.
While helping him, a white minivan driving through that lot hit a parked Nissan, which in turn hit a woman standing next to it.
But the minivan continued on, striking one of the cops as well as the original slashing victim, before fleeing the lot.
Eric Dori, 19, of Huntington, was arrested in connection to the auto incident, police said.
Dori was charged with two counts of assault in the second degree, leaving the scene of an incident with serious injury and leaving the scene of an incident with property damage.
Attorney information for Dori was not immediately clear.
The injured cop, the man slashed in the neck and the woman hit by the Nissan were all taken to a local hospital -- where police found another two victims being treated as well.
