Three suspects are at large after a violent robbery of the owner and operator of a coffee truck on Long Island.
It happened Friday, Jan. 31 at 4:20 p.m. in Westbury.
According to Nassau County Police detectives, a 39-year-old man who owns and operates a coffee truck was closing up for business while in the parking lot of BJ’s Wholesale Club at 6000 Brush Hollow Road.
