OZONE PARK — A teen was arrested less than two weeks ago for allegedly assaulting someone on the street during a mugging attempt, the Queens district attorney’s office said.

Hemant Persaud, 16, of 118th Street, was arraigned Oct. 28 on an attempted robbery charge, the DA’s office said.

Ten days earlier, Persaud approached another man at the corner of 107th Avenue and 108th Street and asked for his phone, the criminal complaint said. He then allegedly punched the victim in the face, according to the complaint.

The victim did not give up his phone, the complaint said.
