Hillside T-Mobile robbed


Nassau County Police 3rd Squad detectives are seeking a man who robbed a T-Mobile store at 3363 Hillside Avenue in Herricks last week and assaulted a store clerk to make his getaway.

The suspect, a young male Hispanic or black man, entered the store on Nov. 18 around 5 p.m. and told the clerk he needed a new cell phone. He then told the T-Mobil employee that he had a gun, did not display the gun, and demanded money from the cash register, police said.

The victim complied, giving the robber the money from the register. When he turned back to find the alarm panic button, the robber struck the victim in the back of the head with his hand, police said.

The robber then fled with an undetermined amount of cash. There were no other customers or workers present in the store at the time.

When police arrived on the scene, the store clerk refused medical treatment, although he complained of paid in his head and his right knee.

The suspect is described as a male Hispanic or black, 5-feet, 10 inches tall, wearing dark colored clothing and a gray sweatshirt.

Anyone with information about this robbery is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
