Nassau County police officers remain on the search for a 33-year-old man who allegedly robbed a woman of her car no more than 10 minutes after being released from the county’s police headquarters, according to a release from law enforcement officials.

A 62-year-old woman, whose name was not disclosed by officials, was sitting in her 2019 blue Cadillac SUV in front of 250 Old Country Road when a man later identified as 22-year-old Patrick Blaszkiewicz approached the vehicle, police said. 

Officials said Blaszkiewicz demanded the female to exit the vehicle.

As she exited, Blaszkiewicz allegedly entered the car and began driving westbound on Old Country Road.  The woman told officials Blaszkiewicz was wearing a hospital gown and blue scrub style pants, police said.

Officials said he was released from the county’s police headquarters at 1490 Franklin Ave., 10 minutes prior to the alleged incident.  There is no known address for Blaszkiewicz, according to the release.

Efforts to reach a member of the county’s police department for further updates or comment on the matter were unavailing. 

Officials urge anyone with knowledge of Blaszkiewicz’s whereabouts to call the Third Squad at 516-573-6353.

The robbery was the second this week in the Village of Mineola. 

Officials said an unknown man broke the glass from the front door of Enterprise Rental Car at 297 W. Jericho Turnpike in Mineola at 1:39 a.m. on Sunday.  

The man was caught on a security camera entering the building and rummaging through the office, according to officials.

The man was described as white, 5-foot-9, with a medium build, and he wore a black face mask, a black jacket, blue sweatpants with a white stripe on them, a gray hat, and black sneakers, according to a news release.

Officials reported no stolen items or cash, but the damage to the front door was estimated at $3,000, according to the news release. Efforts to reach a representative from Enterprise or the police department for further information were unavailing.
