Cops: Kids robbed leaving bus stop in Baldwin

Nassau County police are investigating the robbery of two youths as they left a bus stop Friday afternoon in Baldwin.

Police said two males approached an 11- and 13-year-old, both boys, who were walking home from their bus stop on Forest Avenue at about 3 p.m. Police said one male who was wearing a dark coat and a white hooded sweatshirt demanded belongings and then removed a cellphone from the 11-year-old victim's pocket. That suspect then pushed the 13-year-old to the ground and removed his iPhone, police said. Both suspects then fled on foot in an unknown direction, police said.

The 13-year-old suffered a head contusion and was taken to a hospital by Nassau County Ambulance.
