Nassau County cops say the individual entered Kidz Stuff in Valley Stream minutes before 4 p.m. Sunday and approached a register employee while brandishing a handgun from his waistband and demanded cash. Upon taking the money, he left the store through a rear door and was seen riding away in a Ford Escape, according to police.

Information led police to a home on East Rockaway Road in Hewlett where the robber was believed to be located. However, after searching the residence, the subject was not there.

He is described to be about 6 feet tall and approximately 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie, a black cloth covering the lower part of his face and light colored blue jeans.

Detectives request anyone with information regarding this incident to call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
