Masked Man Wielding Knife Strikes Yet Again on Long Island: Police

A masked man wielding a knife has struck for a 16th time on Long Island, Suffolk County police say.

The man held up a worker at an ice cream shop Wednesday night on Long Island and authorities say it appears to be linked to other knife-point robberies in the area, police said.

The man, armed with a large knife, walked into a Baskin-Robbins in Bohemia along Sunrise Highway shortly before 9 p.m. and demanded cash, police said.

The suspect then ran away on foot and into an awaiting car, authorities said.

The robbery comes just 24 hours after a Subway restaurant was held up Tuesday night in Ronkonkoma, police said.

A knifepoint serial robber who has committed several crimes across Nassau and Suffolk counties hit again Wednesday night, police say.

That same suspect is tied to at least 15 other robberies across Nassau and Suffolk counties, according to officials.

No injuries were reported in any case, police said.

A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest, authorities said.
