Police: Wallet Stolen From Stranded NY Driver

HICKSVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — Police said a man who was stranded during a major winter storm was robbed of his wallet by men who initially appeared to be trying to help him.

The man got stuck in the snow around 1 a.m. Monday while driving on Plainview Road in Hicksville. Police said two men approached and offered to help push the car.

When they weren’t able to move it, one of the men put his hand under his jacket and demanded the driver’s wallet.

The two men then fled with the wallet.

    Where is the description of the perpetrators so we may know who to be aware of … or should we simply guess what their description is. Nevertheless, that wouldn’t be difficult.

    1. Better them then me says:

      I agree . These two criminals took advantage of a hectic situation to rob someone of their cash,credit cards, drivers’ license etc.
      Just imagine if he would have fought back, he would have been the dead guy on the side of the road @ 2am.
      If it were you, your mother,father,daughter or spouse. What extreme measure would you recommend?

  5. They'll get theirs.... says:

    Now that’s a damn shame.
    Poor guy, he should’ve been off-duty police who then turned and blew their damn heads off.
