Cops: Two men rob gas station in N. Valley Stream
The robbery at the station on Franklin Avenue occurred at 8:20 p.m., Nassau County police said. Police said the robbers "threatened the use of a gun," ordering one station attendant to the ground while forcing a second attendant to open the cash register.
It was not clear how much cash was taken.
One robber, who police said had "a heavy build," wore a black ski mask, black coat and blue pants with a yellow stripe. The second robber, who police said was taller and thin, wore a white mask, white gloves, a black sweater and black pants.
The two ran from the station on foot, police said, but then got into the Soul parked on nearby Agnes Court, made a U-turn -- and fled southbound on Franklin Avenue.
No one was injured.
Police are asking anyone with information regarding the robbery to call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS. All calls will remain confidential.
