Nassau County’s first squad is investigating a robbery which took place on Friday. The incident happened around 3 p.m. that day in Baldwin as two kids were walking home from school.
Detectives say the two victims, 11 and 13, were walking home from their bus stop on Forest Avenue when they were approached by two black men. As of now there are no solid descriptions of the two subjects other than what they wore. The first subject wore a dark coat and hooded sweatshirt while the second suspect had on black and white Air Jordan Sneakers with the number 23 on the back.
Once approached, subject one in the hooded sweatshirt demanded that both kids give up their IPhone. The 11-year-old’s was taken from his pocket while the 13-year-old was pushed to the ground before giving up his phone to the assailants. As this was going on the second subject stood there and said nothing.
When the 13-year-old was knocked down he hit his head on the ground and suffered a contusion. He was transported to the hospital by means of a Nassau County Ambulance. At this time it is unknown who the two subjects are, and these are the only descriptions given. Once both IPhone’s were stolen, both men fled the scene in an unknown direction.
Detectives are asking anyone with information on who robbed the two children walking home from school to contact the Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
