Cops: Hewlett Duane Reade Robbed, Employee Thrown to Floor

Three subjects are at large after they robbed a Hewlett pharmacy Wednesday night, according to Nassau County Police.

Cops said that a man and a woman distracted two employees while a second man jumped over the pharmaceutical counter and took non-prescription items. A security gate protected all prescription medications.

A male employee tried to stop the trio as they attempted to flee and he was thrown to the ground, police reported. The three took off in an unknown direction.

The robbery happened at 8:50 p.m. Wednesday, cops said.

None of the employees, including the one who was shoved, reported any injuries.

Detectives are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
