Cops: Juvenile Robbed on Prospect Avenue

Police say two suspects motioned as if they had a gun and demanded items from the victim's pockets.

A juvenile was walking on Prospect Avenue in East Meadow Saturday night with two friends when police say they were approached by two suspects who robbed him.

According to Nassau Police detectives, the suspects - both described as black males wearing hooded sweatshirts - demanded one victim empty his pockets. One suspect allegedly simulated having a gun in his sweatshirt. The victim complied, handing over cash.

The suspects fled on foot southbound on Prospect Avenue. No injuries reported at this time. 

Detectives ask anyone with information about this crime to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.  All callers will remain anonymous.

Hey Mr. Eastwood, I believe it's more than a "bunch of dirtbag punks". There have been cars broken into all over EM and several robberies. I don't know how many since I don't read the actual police reports and rely on the Patch, Newsday and neighbors for info on crimes in EM. The point is crime is definitely up in EM why I don't know maybe drug use, economy and/or dirtbag punks. I just hope that the police are taking this serious and increase patrols.

Hate to say it. but yes there is more than one kid drug dealer in this town.. not based on fact but common sense.. times are different then 5 years ago which are different than 10 years ago.. it seems that a heavy drug is now the addiction to prescription meds. the pain killers.. definately agree that it is a bunch of local kids robbing but also some of the homeless wandering around.. I do know from another resident that the cars being broken into was a white male in his 40's , slim and done in the 2-3am hour .. (he has surveillance cameras, that were checked next day).. his M.O.. walking non chalantly down sidewalk , then walking up to cars in driveway, checking to see if they unlocked and then, if not, walking away trying to blend like he fits in.. so just be aware and lets keep the streets safe.
