An armed robber held up two gas stations and a convenience store in a 20-minute span in Farmingdale, Hicksville and Levittown early Friday morning, Nassau County police said.

The suspect first walked into the USA Gas Station on Fulton Avenue in Farmingdale, brandished a black handgun at the clerk and stole cash at 3:25 a.m., police said.

The same robber then walked into the Exxon Gas Station on Hempstead Turnpike in Levittown, where he again flashed a black handgun and stole cash, packages of cigars and cigarettes at 3:40 a.m., police said.

Five minutes later, the gunman entered a 7-Eleven on Jerusalem Avenue in Hicksville, where he stole cash and cigarettes, police said.

The victims were not injured and the robber fled. The suspect was described as a black or Hispanic man, 25 to 30 years old, 5-feet, 7-inches tall with a slim build, wearing a black hooded jacket.

Robbery Squad detectives ask anyone with information regarding these crimes to contact the Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
