POLICE were hunting a gunman today who held a gun to the head of an eight-year-old child during a New York jewelry store robbery.
Nassau County Police said three armed crooks burst into the store in Hewlett, Long Island.
They pistol-whipped, punched and kicked the store’s owner while one of the men put a gun to the head of the child. It all happened in front of two women who were in the store.
The robbers grabbed jewelry from a display case and fled the scene, police said. The owner was cut in the head in the attack and was taken to the hospital.
