Nassau County Crime Stoppers has released a sketch and surveillance image of a suspect who in late August stole a hover board scooter from three SUNY Old Westbury students at gunpoint.

The suspect has been described as a 6-foot-tall black male with a gold “grill” on his bottom teeth and wearing a red, white and gray sweater.

The incident took place August 28 at 1:30 a.m., when police said the suspect pulled up alongside the three male victims in a tan sport utility vehicle, exited and demanded the hover board while displaying a handgun.

The victims, two aged 20 and another aged 19, then gave him the hover board, police said, and the suspect fled in the SUV.

No injuries were reported.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the suspect’s arrest, and may be contacted at 1-800-TIPS or by calling SUNY Old Westbury’s campus security line at 516-876-3333.
