The Path of LI’s Knifepoint Robber

The man suspected of a string of knifepoint robberies across Long Island since mid-February was caught by police Monday night, cops say. The man is suspected of hitting 18 stores — 10 in Nassau and eight in Suffolk — mainly chain ice cream shops and sandwich restaurants, and demanding cash, according to police. Two of those were attempted robberies. No injuries were reported in any of the incidents.

The suspect and two others — a man and a woman — were arrested by Suffolk and Nassau police after a robbery of a Carvel in Huntington Station, Suffolk Assistant Police Commissioner Justin Meyers said.

The two other people are being investigated to determine if they are connected to the robbery spree, Meyers said.
