Cops Seek Armed Robber in Suffolk Crime Spree
Suffolk County police Wednesday released a photo of the man they believe is responsible for more than a dozen armed robberies at various businesses on eastern Long Island over the past month.
The suspect’s crime spree started Dec. 9 at a Subway sandwich shop in Medford, police said. The latest robbery occurred Tuesday at Mobil on the Run on Sunrise Highway in Islip Terrace, police said.
The man has robbed at least six Subway restaurants and several gas stations, along with a Carvel in Center Moriches on New Year’s Day, according to police. In total, 14 businesses have been hit during the crime wave.
The robberies have all occurred between 7 p.m. and midnight.
Police said the handgun-toting robber is “possibly Hispanic” and between 5-feet-6 and 5-feet-10. He typically wears a hooded sweatshirt, a dark-colored scarf and mask over his face.
He steals cash and flees the scene on foot, police added.
Anyone with information regarding these robberies is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
