An 18-year-old walking along a street in Valley Stream late Thursday night was attacked, assaulted and robbed of his iPhone, police said.

Nassau County police said the robbers are still at-large.

The robbery occurred just before midnight on West Circle Drive near the Best Buy store.

Police said the 18-year-old was walking on the drive when an attacker, described as a 6-foot-1 teen wearing a dark-colored baseball cap, approached from behind and punched him in the face. A second attacker then confronted the victim, while the first took his phone, police said. The two attackers then jumped into a waiting Toyota sedan and fled the scene.

Police described the car as an older model, but had no additional description of the car.
