Valley Stream cellphone store robbed by 2 men, cops say

Nassau County police are looking for two men who robbed a T-Mobile store Thursday afternoon in Valley Stream.

Police said a 35-year-old employee was working at the 116 Rockaway Ave. store when two men entered and ordered him into the back of the business at about 1:53 p.m.

The men threatened the use of a gun while forcing the employee to lie down, but did not show him one, police said.

The robbers stole a number of cellphones and fled through the rear door. Police said they were last seen getting into a white 4-door sedan that drove west on West Fairview Avenue, then south on Corona Avenue.

The employee was not injured. The robbers are believed to be in their 20s, police said.

Detectives are asking anyone with information to call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS to report information anonymously.
