A local man has been cuffed for allegedly robbing a Bayside bartender at gunpoint in February, police said.

Peter Pocius, a 38-year-old resident of 209th Street, has been charged with first-degree robbery and criminal possession of a weapon in connection to a Feb. 27 incident at J.D.’s Saloon, located at 208-11 35th Ave.

Following the incident, the 35-year-old male bartender on duty told authorities from the 111th Precinct that the perpetrator entered the saloon at around 3:11 a.m. The suspect proceeded to the bar counter, displayed a firearm and demanded cash. The employee then handed the perpetrator a bag containing $700 and the suspect fled the scene on foot.
