A thief had on a coronavirus mask and in-line skates when he robbed a Long Island doughnut shop, police said.
The robbery took place Friday night at a Dunkin' Donuts in Hicksville, Nassau County police said.
They said the male individual purchased a cup of coffee before announcing a robbery.
“The subject, while simulating that he had a gun under his clothes, demanded that the store clerk give him cash from the register,” police said.
After being given an undetermined amount of cash the robber skated off, they said.
The victim told police the thief was wearing blue sweatpants, a brown “Carhartt” jacket and a red beanie cap.
He also said the person had on the coronavirus surgical mask, black rubber gloves and inline skates with a bronze chassis, police said.
They released a photo of the suspect.
