By John Valenti
An off-duty New York City police officer foiled a robbery attempt in Valley Stream, tracking down the assailant and helping to arrest him moments after he witnessed an attack.
Nassau County police said the officer, Edward Bilardi, was driving along North Central Avenue at 2:11 p.m. Sunday when he saw Samuel Denis, 24, of 310 Miriam Ct., Elmont, attacking a 76-year-old man, whom authorities did not identify.
