Two young men, believed to be armed and in their teens, stopped a 17-year-old boy riding his bicycle in East Meadow just after midnight Tuesday - then stole his bike, police said.
Police are now searching for the bicycle thieves.
Nassau County police said the incident occurred near the intersection of Marlboro Street and Newbridge Road at 12:50 a.m. The two robbers approached the teen on the bike and one "gestured through his sleeve that he had a handgun," police said. One of the robbers took the bike and fled the scene on it, while the other fled the area on foot, police said.
No one was injured.
