The Third Squad reports the details of a robbery that occurred at 9:05 pm on Saturday, April 22, 2023, in East Meadow.
According to Detectives, a 23-year-old male victim, while working as a loss prevention agent at Walmart, 2465 Hempstead Turnpike, did observe two male blacks enter the electronics department and place assorted items into their shopping cart. They then proceeded to a store employee and asked for assistance with Apple watches. Once the display was opened, the subjects took nine Apple watches. After this they took three breast pumps and two PlayStation headphones, placing all items in their cart. The total value of the items taken was $4,927.95 (US). Both subjects proceeded to the store exit, passing both points of purchase without making any attempt to pay for the items in their cart. At this point the victim approached the second subject, accompanied by another store employee and a physical struggle ensued as the victims attempted to secure the merchandise. During the struggle the second subject said “shoot him” to the first subject. The first subject then helped to free the second subject and they both fled the parking lot northbound on Newbridge Road in a grey BMW four door sedan.
The first subject is described as a male black, wearing all black clothing with a black ski mask. The second subject is described as a male black wearing all black, with a black surgical mask and a brown New York Yankees baseball cap.
