BALDWIN, N.Y. (CBS 2) — Nassau County police were hunting three robbers who held up two delis in Baldwin and Freeport on the same night.
Surveillance video showed of one of the attacks last Saturday.
Police said the robbers, wearing masks, burst into United Deli in Baldwin. One held a gun while the others jumped over the counter and went through the cash register.
The two deli workers tried to run out and lock the men inside, but they got away.
“They took the money, the phone the computer, some cigarettes and some things they could grab from there,” said robbery victim Vicky Nimer.
The deli workers were not seriously hurt.
Police said the same group held up a deli in Freeport less than an hour later.
