Lawrence Man Robbed at Gunpoint in His Driveway

Couple held him at gunpoint and stole his money, police said.

An Lawrence man was robbed at gunpoint in his Lawrence Avenue driveway early Thursday, according to police.

At 12:45 a.m. on Jan. 31, the 31-year-old male victim was approached by two people that pulled up in a white Land Rover asking for directions, police said. The male driver — described as black, 6-feet tall and in his 40s — then pulled a silver handgun on the victim and told him not to move.

The female passenger — described as Hispanic and 5-feet tall — went through the victim’s wallet and took an undetermined amount of money before throwing the wallet on the ground.

The subjects were last seen driving southbound on Lawrence Avenue. No injuries were reported.

Detectives ask that anyone with information about this crime should contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.

There are crimes like this happening almost every day in this area. What are the police doing about it?

I also find it somewhat odd that a man driving a Land Rover needs to rob someone. Unless that was stolen as well.

It's not the clothes or the car that make the man. This is laughable everyone voted to consolidate the police what did you expect. Wait til the home invasions start and we have a gang of armed thugs forcing their way into your home. Oh you better be a good shot or fast at reloading with our new gun laws. Don't bother calling the police because like I found out during sandy they don't have enough police for inwood do you think they have enough for Lawrence LOL.
