On 8/8/23, at approximately 7:53 p.m, a jewelry store experienced a smash and grab robbery.  Upon entry into the store, four subjects who were in possession of steel sledgehammers began smashing into 9 different cases that included but not limited to, bridal and gold jewelry.  As this was in progress and they were concealing the selected items into bags they were carrying, mall security intervened to disrupt the subjects’ activity.  In doing so, all subjects immediately began to flee the scene without further incident.  Suspects were seen entering a vehicle with an awaiting fifth subject/getaway driver. 

Subject Description:

5 subjects – All subjects appeared to be Hispanic Male juveniles, one of the subjects was possibly a Black male and one was a White Male.  The subjects were dressed in all black with hoodies, ski masks, gloves, and yielding sledgehammers. If you have any information regarding these subjects, please contact the Jewelers’ Security Alliance at or 212-687-0328.
