A Long Island man is under arrest in connection with an altercation that left another man dead on the LIRR tracks in Bellmore.

An initial call to police Saturday morning reported that a man had fallen from a station platform onto the track area of the Bellmore station after possibly suffering a seizure.

But investigators later learned that a verbal dispute turned into a physical altercation at the station.

34-year old Niheim Levy of Roosevelt has been charged with murder and robbery.

Police say he got into an altercation with the 49-year old Freeport man, whose identity has not yet been released.

The Nassau County and MTA Police Departments are continuing to investigate the incident, which did not involve any trains.
