A Bayville is facing robbery charges for an incident that took place in Bayville on Sunday, authorities said.

Nassau detectives say Kyle J. Johnston, 20 of 12 Greenwhich Street, had taken a taxi from Long Beach to his Bayville home. When they arrived, Johnston refused to pay the fare, and an argument ensued. When the driver got out of the car, Johnston, threw him to the ground “and began to punch and kick the victim in the face,” police said, in a statement.

Johnston then took an unknown amount of cash from the driver, and fled on foot, police said.

The driver transported himself to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Johnston is charged with second-degree robbery and theft of services.

He was scheduled for arraignment on Monday at First District Court in Hempstead.
