Two robbery incidents in 40 minutes.

That’s what police said a gunman committed Tuesday evening in Freeport — and now they’re searching for him.

The first robbery took place when the suspect, wearing dark clothing, a mask and gloves, entered Crosstown Liquor on South Main Street at about 6 p.m., flashed a silver handgun, and demanded cash. The female employee complied.

Then, Nassau County police said, the same suspect entered a Sunoco gas station on Atlantic Avenue at about 6:40 p.m. — and demanded cash from the 55-year-old attendant.

In that case, police said, the employee swatted at the gun. The suspect fled without taking anything. A customer was in the store at the time.
