Just two weeks after being robbed at gunpoint, employees at a Dunkin' Donuts store in Elmont were stuck up again, but in the latest attempt, on Monday night, the armed thug was forced to leave without any cash, Nassau County police said.
The Dec. 2 attempted robbery occurred at 10:20 p.m. at a Dunkin' Donuts shop located at 238-19 Linden Blvd. in Elmont.
In a report of the incident, detectives said a “male black subject,” with a red bandana over his face, entered the store, approached the counter with a gun and demanded money from two female workers.
The frightened employees ran from the suspect and jolted down the stairs into the store’s basement while waiting for police to arrive. The armed goon was left alone in the store and fled without any cash before cops arrived, law enforcement officials said.
One of the employees suffered a minor knee injury after she fell while running away from the gunman. Police said she was later treated and released from a local hospital.
The same doughnut shop was the target of another armed robbery just two weeks ago. The suspect in that stickup is still on the loose.
Police described the latest gunman as 5-foot-10 with a medium build. He was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, green sweatpants and a red bandana on his face.
Investigators ask anyone with information about the robbery or the whereabouts of the suspect to call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
