Cops: Long Beach Woman Pushed Elderly Mother Down Stairs

A 46-year-old Long Beach resident was arrested and charged with attempted murder after police said she pushed her 78-year-old mother down a flight of stairs in their East End home two weeks ago. 

According to the Long Beach Police Department, police answered a call at 5:19 p.m. on Oct. 9 about a domestic dispute at a home on Neptune Boulevard, where Leonard Maggiore told officers at the scene that his daughter, Marlene, pushed his wife, Josephine, down a flight of stairs.  

Josephine sustained three broken ribs, lacerations and swelling to the back of her head and pain in her left shoulder, and the Long Beach Fire Department transported her to Long Beach Medical Center, according to police.  

Eric Cregeen, the department’s public information officer, said Marlene Maggiore was charged with attempted murder based on the police investigation of the incident, but he couldn’t provide details about the nature of the dispute. 

Nassau DA: Long Beach Pizzeria Failed to Pay Workers

Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice announced last Monday that her office’s Labor Unit has secured a top-count guilty plea from a Long Beach pizzeria for failing to pay seven employees more than $45,000.

K & D Ventures, Inc., which operates East End Pizza and Restaurant, pleaded guilty to failing to pay wages, a misdemeanor.

Rice said that the Labor Unit’s investigation, which began last October with complaints from two former employees of the pizzeria, revealed that seven employees were not being paid properly for overtime from January 2008 through October 2011.

In total, K & D failed to pay the seven employees $45,654.42, Rice said. In addition to full restitution, K & D was also sentenced to pay $4,000 in costs and fines.
