Nassau County detectives are seeking information on a robbery Thursday in Elmont in which police say a man wielding a baseball bat demanded a teen hand over his silver chain.

The 15-year-old male was walking on Bedford Avenue at 9:30 p.m. when a man -- described as about 25 years old, 6 feet tall, 165 pounds, with an eyebrow ring and wearing a baseball cap -- got out of an older-model gray Nissan, got a baseball bat from the trunk, and demanded the chain, police said.

A second man -- described as about 25 years old, 5-foot-9 and 210 pounds with facial hair and wearing a white T-shirt and jeans -- exited the passenger side of the Nissan and leaned against it.
