Two robbed of shoes, hat in Uniondale

Two men were robbed of shoes and a hat by two suspects, one of them armed, as they walked along a street in Uniondale Saturday evening, Nassau police said.

The men were walking in the vicinity of California Avenue and Cedar Street about 7 p.m. when two men approached them, one with an automatic handgun, and demanded the contents of their pockets, police said.

When the suspects found that the victims had nothing in their pockets, they took a pair of Nike Rookie sneakers from one of the victims, and a white Brooklyn Nets ski hat from the other, police said. The suspects then ran east on Cedar Street.

The victims were not injured.

Both suspects wore black ski masks. One of the suspects was described as 5-feet, 6-inches tall, wearing a hooded sweatshirt and green jeans.

Police ask anyone with any information about this case to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS. Calls will be kept confidential.
