Police are searching for two men who exited a gray or silver Chevrolet then robbed a man walking along a street in Roosevelt at gunpoint Wednesday night, stealing his wallet, cash -- even studded earrings.

The victim, identified only as a 32-year-old man, was not injured in the armed robbery, police said.

Nassau County police said the incident took place on Lincoln Avenue, near Astor Place, at about 10:45 p.m. They said the two men exited the Chevy -- possibly, a Chevrolet Impala -- and one of them flashed a handgun, before both men rifled the victim's pockets.

The pair stole the victim's wallet, including cash, his driver's license and an ATM card.
