Police are investigating the robbery and attempted robbery of two Long Island Dunkin' Donuts stores located just miles apart.

The first attempted robbery took place around 12:55 a.m., Friday, Jan. 24, at the Dunkin' Donuts located on Long Beach Road in Oceanside, said the Nassau County Police.

According to detectives, an unknown male entered the store with his hand in his pocket and demanded the male employee open the register. 

The employee picked up a knife from the counter and ordered the suspect to get out, police said.

The subject left the store and walked away towards Fairview Avenue. No injuries reported at the scene.

The subject is described as a white male, possibly 37-45 years old, 6-foot-2 with a blonde/red mustache.

He was last seen wearing a gray hoodie, tan jacket, black sweatpants, black socks, and sandals.

The second incident took place around 1:04 a.m., at the Dunkin' Donuts located on Austin Boulevard in North Long Beach.

According to detectives, an unknown male subject entered the business with his hand in his pocket and demanded the register tray from the male employee.

 The victim complied and handed over the tray to the suspect who then exited the store and walked away southbound on Austin Boulevard. 

The subject is described as a white male, possibly 40 years old, 6-foot-2, and was last seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and black pants. 

Anyone with information in either incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
