On 8/18/18, at approximately 2:50 p.m., two subjects entered a jewelry store and were greeted by a sales associate. The subjects stated they were already being helped. They then proceeded to a display case containing loose diamonds. At that point, the second subject brandished a hammer and smashed a single case from the side. After the cases were breached, management yelled: “Police are coming.” The first subject fled from the store without any merchandise. The second subject took loose diamonds from a case, but cut his hand in the process. He left his hammer and blood at the scene.

The male subjects were described as Black and in their 20’s. They are both 5’7” and weigh approximately 135 pounds. The first subject was last seen wearing a black ball cap, black hoodie, and black shorts. The second subject has braided hair and was last seen wearing a grey hoodie with black sweatpants. If you have any information regarding these subjects, please call the Jewelers’ Security Alliance at 212-687-0328.
