Police: Teen robbed of iPhone at gunpoint in Roosevelt

Nassau County police are looking for two men who robbed a teen of his iPhone and cash at gunpoint early Monday in Roosevelt.

Police said the two men, armed with a small black handgun, approached the victim, a boy, 16, at about 12:30 a.m. at East Clinton Avenue and Cottage Place.

The two demanded that the teen hand over his cellphone, and he also gave them $10 in cash, police said.

The two checked the victim's pockets, recovering "additional items," police said, then pushed him to the ground and left in a white two-door car.

Police said the car had a rear spoiler and tinted windows and headed west on East Clinton Avenue.

The victim was not hurt, police said.
