Nassau detectives are looking for a man who, after trying on a pair of sneakers
at a Westbury store yesterday, pulled a gun and bolted with the footwear.

At 4:20 p.m., police responded to Westbury Sneakers at 621 Old Country Rd.,
where they said the gunman made off with the kicks, valued at $275.

Witnesses told police that the man, described as 5-feet-7-inches tall with short
hair, entered the store and tried on two pairs of sneakers. He later pulled a
handgun at the register, demanded the sneakers, and fled west on Old Country
Road.

No arrests have been made.

Police said the man was wearing a dark-colored puffy jacket, blue pants and
possible sweats. They're asking anyone with information about the robbery to
call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS, where callers will remain anonymous.
