Two men, one with open warrants against him, were charged with robbing a Baldwin bank at gunpoint, according to Nassau County Police.

Robbery Squad detectives said Isaiah Hunter, 20, and Essix Robinson, 21, both of Hempstead, robbed a Bank of America on Grand Avenue in Baldwin Monday afternoon.

At 2:42 p.m., the duo entered the bank where Hunter displayed a gun and ordered two employees and eight customers to the ground, cops said. Robinson then jumped over the teller counter and took an unknown amount of cash from the drawers, police reported.

The two fled in a light-colored, four-door car driven by a third unknown subject, cops reported.

Responding officers from the First Precinct and Bureau of Special Operations found the two on Babylon Turnpike in Freeport, cops said. A hand gun and proceeds on the robbery were found with them, detectives said.

Robinson also had two open warrants against him, detectives discovered.

One female customer reported minor knee pain and was transported to a hospital for treatment, cops said.

Hunter and Robinson were both charged with first and second-degree robbery and first-degree criminal use of a firearm. They will be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.

These "disadvantaged" youth have been out of control. Nassau County needs to get their priorities in order.

Disadvantaged? 98% of the worlds youth would love to change places with these two miscreants who have apparently squandered all that a Nassau COunty education would afford them. They are better off in jail where they cannot procreate and litter the planet with their worthless, unproductive spawn.

RVC Guy - sorry I'm so late in getting back to this, but I was being sarcastic with my disadvantaged comment. Nassau County is way too lenient and giving to criminals like this and they are ruining our neighborhoods. Remember how nice Baldwin was just 20-25 years ago? Now, tell me how safe you would feel walking down Grand Ave in broad daylight. A stabbing at Burger King, kids robbed at gunpoint, cab drivers can't even feel safe. And no you race baiters, I am not being racist; I'm stating a fact. The demographics did change, but so did the quality of life in the community. Make your own assumptions...
