Man robbed woman outside Uniondale nursing home, cops say

Nassau police detectives are searching for a man who they say robbed a woman outside a Uniondale nursing home early Sunday morning.

Third Squad detectives said a 57-year-old woman was walking from her car to the entrance of Townhouse Center for Rehab and Nursing at 755 Hempstead Tpke., when she was approached by a man holding an unknown object who demanded money.

The man, believed to be in his 20s, pushed the woman, causing her to injure her head, police said. He then took the woman’s work bag and iPhone, before running north through the facility’s parking lot.

The woman was treated for her injuries at a hospital, and later released.

Detectives are calling on those with information to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS.
