Nassau County police are looking for two men who robbed a woman in her parked car at gunpoint Thursday at the Westfield Sunrise Mall in East Massapequa.

Seventh Squad detectives said the woman, 20, was in her parked car on the west side of the mall lot at about 10 p.m. when a man in dark clothing and a hooded sweatshirt approached her and "demanded her property."

The woman's driver-side door was open at the time, and the suspect displayed a black handgun as he reached inside to remove the victim's car keys, police said.

The victim gave the suspect her pocketbook, and police also said the suspect was accompanied by a second man.

Both men then ran off west toward East Gate Road, police said.

There were no injuries.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.
