Cops: Robbers Swipe Cash And Employee Possessions At Hempstead Game Shop

A foursome of thieves is on the loose after allegedly robbing a video game store.

According to detectives, Thursday around 8 p.m., two men wielding handguns and wearing black masks, entered Game Stop in Hempstead. They ordered one store employee on the floor and the other to the cash register. One of the men ran to the back where he opened a door, letting two additional accomplices inside.

No injuries were reported.
