Suspects flashed knives in Roosevelt robbery, cops say

Police are searching for three suspects who robbed a man at knifepoint on a street in Roosevelt early Monday.

Nassau County police said the victim, identified only as a 29-year-old man, was walking along East Pennywood Avenue at 4 a.m. when three male suspects approached, flashed black knives — and demanded cash. The victim handed over cash, as well as his cellphone and keys, and the trio then ran away, police said.

There were no reported injuries.

Police said all three suspects wore black clothing and dark masks that covered their faces.

Detectives are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-8477. All calls will remain confidential.
