Police on Long Island are looking for a man who struck a pedestrian with a handgun and fired several shots during an attempted robbery.

The victim was walking along Ruxton Street in Uniondale on Saturday when the suspect exited a parked car and told the victim to come over.

When the victim said he had nothing on him, Nassau County police say the suspect hit him in the face with a silver handgun.

As the 21-year-old victim ran away, police say the suspect fired several shots and then left in the car.

Detectives ask anyone with information about the incident to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800 244-TIPS.
