Police are seeking the public’s help to identify and locate the man pictured above who they say robbed someone at a store at the Walt Whitman Shops in Huntington Station last month. 

Police said a man was in the Apple Store, located at 160 Walt Whitman Road, when he felt an unknown man put his hand into the victim’s jacket pocket in an attempt to steal the victim’s wallet on Jan. 13 at 4 p.m. The two men struggled and the suspect gained control of the wallet that contained cash, police said.

The robber fled the mall in a 2008 white Toyota Camry, police said.

Marilyn. You have friends that are black. So do I. I have family members who are black. . It's okay to say that. Your president says the word black when referring to black people. Is that word offensive to you? It's okay to call a deaf person deaf or a blind person blind or a white person white. I asked you a question earlier in this thread. Do you have an answer?

Marilyn. Forgot to ask. Were you ever able to locate your vehicle? And not that you shouldn't be allowed to do so but Were the keys in it ? Was the engine left running?

LS. An " in progress call" or a level one call are dispatched immediately. Not doubting your honesty. Also the records are public. Just have to know where to look.

Six Pack...if you knew me, you would realize that my keys were not in the vehicle. I still had the keys and I always lock my car. The Jeep was never found but we have a good insurance company. As for your other question regarding the color of one's skin, I suppose it doesn't matter what terminology we use as long as it doesn't offend the person we are speaking to. I was a victim of religious persecution when I was very young. Perhaps that's what makes me sensitive to labeling someone as "black."
