Cops say an unmasked man, assaulted a store employee and stole a cup of coffee, after he was told that he couldn’t be served because he wasn’t wearing a mask. Officials say on Wednesday, July 1st just before 10 a. m. a white man in his 50’s entered the 7-11 store at 415 Mill Rd in Hewlett. When the unmasked man went to the counter to make his purchase, he was told by an employee that he couldn’t be served because he wasn’t wearing a mask. The unmasked man attempted to leave the store without paying for his coffee. The employee attempted to stop the unmasked man from leaving without paying. The unmasked man grabbed the employee by the throat, choking him and pushed him outside the door. Once outside, a second suspect, described as a white male in his 20’s exited a grey Jeep and threw the employee to the ground. Both men left in the same grey Jeep. Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All calls will remain anonymous.
