Cops: Man held up in Freeport by pair of masked bandits

Two masked men stole a 20-year-old man’s headphones and broke his leg during a knifepoint robbery in Freeport early Sunday morning, according to Nassau police.

The Freeport man was walking on Rutland Road about 2:25 a.m. when two suspects began running toward him, according to a Nassau County Police Department news release.

The victim, who was not identified, told police he began to run away but was tackled by a suspect wearing a black face mask and hoodie, who then pulled out a silver-handled knife and demanded money.

The victim said he didn’t have any money, according to police. The second suspect, wearing a white face mask, took the man’s headphones. Both suspects ran south on Rutland Road, police said.

Police did not say how the victim suffered broken bones in his right leg.
