LYNBROOK, NY (WCBS 880 / 1010 WINS) – Authorities say a man dressed up like a Barbie doll robbed a store on Long Island.
The man had on a pink jumpsuit, blonde wig, and was carrying a white handbag.
Nassau County Police Sgt. Anthony Repalone says the man was armed when he entered the C and R Stationery store in Lynbrook around 1:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon.
“This particular subject approached the clerk, removed the handgun from his handbag, and demanded cash,” Repalone told WCBS 880 reporter Sophia Hall. “When the clerk was unable to open the cash register, he became frustrated and stole a bottle of Gatorade and fled the store.”
No one was injured.
Police said the man is believed to be between 25 and 30-years-old. He is still on the loose.
