Suspects sought in mugging attempt in Freeport lot, police say

Nassau County police are searching for two suspects who they say tried to rob a man Friday evening in a Freeport parking lot.

The two men approached the victim, a 27-year-old man, about 7:55 p.m. in Parking Field 11 on Church Street where they attempted to steal his wallet while using “physical force,” according to a news release.

The village parking field is on Church Street between Merrick Road and Pine Street.
