Teen Robbed While Walking Home in Uniondale

Nassau County police are looking for two teenagers who robbed another teen Friday afternoon in Uniondale, police said.

The 14-year-old victim was walking home on Emerson Street near Hempstead Boulevard at 3:30 p.m. when the two teens—described as Hispanic and around 16 to 18 years old—pushed him to the ground, police said.

They then grabbed the victim’s backpack, which contained his textbooks and an iPad. The pair fled the scene—one through a rear yard and the other northbound on Emerson Street, police said.


The victim wasn’t injured. He told police that one robber looked about five-foot, ten-inches tall and the other, six-foot.
