The Nassau County Police are seeking out three individuals who attacked a woman and stole her necklace at a Mobil Gas Station in East Hills Tuesday afternoon. The investigation is ongoing, police said.
The woman, 36, refused medical attention at the scene.
According to police, the woman stopped at the gas station at 449 Glen Cove Road around 1:55 p.m. Tuesday and had asked a woman in a U-Haul to move her truck forward so she could access the pump.
When asked, the woman in the U-Haul struck the victim to the ground. Afterward, two men came out of the U-Haul and began kicking and punching the victim, police said. The woman then ripped a necklace off of the victim.
The three individuals then fled the scene in the U-Haul, traveling westbound on the Long Island Expressway South Service Road, according to police.
Police described the three suspects as a black woman wearing a white t-shirt, black biker shorts and black and white sneakers, a black man with short dreadlocks wearing black shorts and baby blue basketball shorts, and a black man wearing a white tank top, black shorts and white sneakers.
Nassau County detectives are asking individuals with information about the crime to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS or to call 911. All callers will remain anonymous.
