Cops: Three rob Hewlett pharmacy

Three people robbed a Hewlett pharmacy Wednesday evening, despite a security guard's attempt to stop them, Nassau police said.

According to detectives, a woman and two men entered the Duane Reade on Broadway. While the woman and one of the men distracted the two employees, the second man jumped over the pharmaceutical counter and removed some nonprescription items, police said.

The guard prevented him from reaching the prescription medical items, police said, and the three fled, throwing the male guard to the floor. There were no injuries reported. The female suspect was wearing a blue striped jacket. One male suspect was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, and the other male was wearing a blue hooded jacket, police said.

Detectives request anyone with information about the crime to call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
