Detectives are seeking a man who stole a television from a Walmart in Valley Stream and slashed an 18-year-old worker who approached him, police said.
The robbery at the Green Acres Road store happened at 7:48 a.m., Nassau County police said.
The man, about 6 feet tall, 40 to 50 years old with a stocky build, “wearing a gray sweater, gray hat, black pants, black shoes and a Walmart vest,” was approached by the employee while trying to leave the store with a television he did not pay for, police said.
The robber attacked the worker with a box cutter type of knife, tearing the arm of her jacket, Nassau County police said. The worker was not injured.
The man fled with the TV and got into a light blue or gray Honda Pilot, which headed north on Green Acres Road, police said.
Detectives urge anyone with information about the robbery to confidentially call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS.
