Nassau County police are looking for a masked man who robbed a Hicksville Dunkin’ restaurant and sped away on bronze in-line skates with a cup of coffee and a load of cash.

Yes, in-line skates.

The '90s skating enthusiast rolled into the Dunkin’ restaurant at 100 N. Broadway shortly before 8 p.m. Friday, police said.

The man bought a cup of coffee and then acted like he had a gun under his clothes while demanding a clerk empty the cash register, police said.

After he left the store, the man “was last seen roller skating southbound on Broadway,” police said.

The clerk, who was not hurt, said the thin man was about 5'10" and wore blue sweatpants, a brown Carhartt jacket, a red beanie, a surgical mask, black rubber gloves and in-line skates with a bronze chassis.

Police are asking anyone with information about the bandit to call 800-244-8477.
