A man pulled a knife on the attendant at the Shamrock gas station on Flanders Road in Riverside following an argument July 24 in which the attendant refused to sell the man cigarettes without his showing identification, according to police. The suspect then left and threw a metal pipe at the store’s door as he was driving away, breaking the glass, police said.

The incident was captured on surveillance video, police said.

• Anthony Jenkins, 47, of Old Quogue Road in Riverside was riding his bike without lights on that road in Riverside just before midnight Friday when he was spotted for the light violation. An officer tried to pull him over, according to police, but he tried to flee the scene on the bicycle. After a short while, he nearly fell off and was arrested, police said.

A search of Mr. Jenkins subsequently turned up a crack pipe and a small quality of cocaine, according to police. He was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

• Failure to signal a turn on Ludlam Avenue in Riverhead was what led officers to pull over Cynthia Massenburg, 47, of Riverleigh Avenue in Riverside Sunday at 1 p.m. After that, she was searched, and several crack pipes, along with hashish and marijuana, were found, according to police. She was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of marijuana and the unsafe turn violation, according to police.

• Tammy Cipriano, 44, of Old Quogue Road in Riverside and Carlos Gonzalez-Leverman, 26, of Pulaski Street in Riverhead were charged with prostitution and third-degree patronizing a prostitute, respectively, after a police officer saw them having sex in the bushes off Flanders Road on Saturday night.
Mr. Gonzalez-Leverman told the officer he paid Ms. Cipriano $20 for the sex, according to police. Ms. Cipriano was also charged with public lewdness, police said.

• A Streamlight Rechargeable flashlight valued at $140 and two license plates were reported stolen from a car on Pine Street in Riverside July 24 — and a Mongoose mountain bike that police say was valued at $149 was reported stolen from the yard at that same address and time, according to police.

Those who are named in police reports have not been convicted of any crime or violation. The charges against them may later be reduced or withdrawn, or they may be found innocent.
