North Amityville, NY - June 27th, 2014 -  Suffolk County Crime Stoppers and First Squad detectives are seeking the public’s help to identify and locate the man responsible for a robbery in North Amityville earlier this month.

The victim was treated at an area hospital for stitches.

The suspect was described as a black male in his 20s, approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall and 160 pounds. He was wearing dark clothing and a black baseball cap.
