    A Long Island man was arrested Friday for threatening to kill supporters of President Donald Trump and Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin — then nearly hitting a Zeldin campaign staffer with his car, according to Suffolk County police. It was the latest in a string of attacks against the administration and its allies. Martin Astrof, 75, of Nesconset, “became irate” at the Suffolk County campaign headquarters of Rep. Lee Zeldin at 11:15 a.m. Friday, local police said. He threatened to kill a campaign worker, as well as other Zeldin and Trump supporters — then “backed his car up in an aggressive...

    Democrats in New York flipped a New York Assembly seat on Tuesday, winning a seat that has been in GOP hands for nearly four decades. Democrat Steve Stern, a former Suffolk County legislator, beat out Janet Smitelli (R) for AD-10, a Long Island seat, with 59 percent of the vote, according to Daily Kos. The district has been represented by a Republican since 1978. Former presidents Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both won the district in the last two presidential elections, but the 18-point margin in Tuesday's election is indicative of a growing blue wave in the area.

    Notorious street-gang MS-13 has reportedly ordered its members to “take out” police officers in New York; hoping to send a strong message to authorities following a serious crackdown on the group throughout the region. According to the New York Post, the NYPD is on high-alert after a confidential informant told police that gang members were given a green light to murder local police officers; particularly in the nearby town of Hempstead on Long Island. “The police have been making too many arrests and it’s time to take the streets back and take out (shoot) a cop like we do in...

    MS-13 has directed its members to “take out a cop” on Long Island — prompting the NYPD to put its officers on high alert, according to a new memo obtained by The Post. Police are hunting for the suspect, a tall, light-skinned Hispanic man with a thin build and a tattoo of three dots next to his eye. Police in Hempstead — one of the Long Island towns where the violent gang has a stronghold — were tipped off to the threat Wednesday by a “credible” informant, the NYPD memo said.

    TOWN OF ISLIP, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A Long Island judge stands accused of breaking into a neighbor’s home, but it’s what police say he stole that’s baffling residents even more. He’s accused of taking worn women’s underwear from the residence. It happened around 9 a.m. Thursday on Donna Place in East Islip. “There was a 23-year-old girl home alone. She heard noise in the house, she saw an intruder,” Suffolk County Police Chief of Department Stuart Cameron said. When the intruder realized someone was home, police said he ran off. But officers quickly caught up with him a couple blocks...

    His pockets were packed with purloined panties. More disturbing details emerged Friday about the pervy Long Island judge accused as a serial underwear snatcher after his arrest for raiding the hamper of an East Islip neighbor. Robert Cicale, when busted for grabbing the undies of his 23-year-old former intern, was carrying a raincoat — its pockets filled with additional panties, authorities said. “He indicated in his confession that he has urges to steal women's underwear,” said Suffolk County District Attorney Tim Sini. “It's a strange set of facts.” Prosecutors, without identifying anyone, said the investigation had turned up five victims...

    HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — With a pivotal local election looming in the fall, the Republican-controlled Nassau County Legislature recently approved new district lines that could help the party secure at least two more seats. A local Republican club has increased its campaign chest tenfold over the last two years, bringing in individual contributions of tens of thousands of dollars from a family paving company, a real estate developer and other donors with business before the county, according to disclosure records. And if past elections are any guide, the party can also turn for campaign help to workers from the county’s special...

    Long Island police say they foiled an MS-13 kidnapping and murder plot when they saw the intended 16-year-old male victim being lured into a van. Plainclothes officers arrested five members and associates of the notorious immigrant street gang on conspiracy charges after Wednesday’s takedown in Brentwood, Newsday reported. President Trump went to Brentwood in July and vowed to crush MS-13, while pledging a tougher approach on immigration. "They have transformed peaceful parks and beautiful quiet neighborhoods into blood-stained killing fields," he said about the gang. "They're animals." Officers told Newsday that two of the suspects, Vidal Contrera-Ortiz, 18, and Miguel...

    Angel Soler's mother brought him to the U.S. as a young boy, figuring things would surely be better than in Honduras, where he had lived in one of the world's most violent cities. Javier Castillo's father made the same calculation when he took his young son out of gang-plagued El Salvador. Life in the leafy Long Island suburbs of New York didn't prove to be any safer.

    A Nassau bagpipe band has passed on the Jets’ invite to play during halftime over NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem, officials said Friday. A Jets group sales representative asked the Nassau County Firefighters Pipes and Drums Band early this week to entertain the crowd during the Nov. 2 game against the Buffalo Bills at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, said band manager Bobby Hughes, an original member of the band and an East Meadow volunteer firefighter. “We don’t feel we belong there,” said Hughes, a longtime Jets season ticket holder. “We cannot in good...
