A 300-pound gunman robbed a Bellmore 7-Eleven of beer Monday for the second time in less than a week, Nassau County police said.
The counter clerk at the Sunrise Highway location recognized the man from the previous week, as the man was heading to the counter with a 12-pack of beer just before 2:45 a.m., police said.
When the clerk told him he would have to pay for the beer, the man pointed a black handgun at him, police said.DataGun crime numbersPhotosRecent LI mug shots
