A suspect is on the loose after a violent armed robbery in the parking lot of a row of stores on Long Island.

It happened just before 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 14 in Uniondale.

Two male victims, 45 and 50 years old, were sitting in the rear parking at 971 Nassau Rd. when they were approached by an unknown man, Nassau County Police said. 

The suspect then asked the victims for money, according to police.
