Cops: Suspects simulating firearms rob 2 men in Sea Cliff

Two men were robbed on a Sea Cliff street early Saturday by two men simulating firearms under their shirts, Nassau County police said.

The two victims were walking on Horace Place near Hawthorne Avenue when a gray four-door Volkswagen sedan passed them about 1:55 a.m., police said in a news release.

The two robbers exited the vehicle, put their hands under their shirts as if they had guns, and demanded money. The pedestrians complied and handed over an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspects got back into the car and fled southbound on Dubois Avenue and then westbound onto Ransom Avenue. No weapons had been displayed, police said, and no injuries were reported.

Police described the vehicle as either a Jetta or Passat with New York license plates.

Third Squad detectives are investigating. They ask that anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.
