New York robber holds man at gunpoint and steals nearly $40,000 in jewelry
A robber was caught on camera forcing a 54-year-old man to lie at gunpoint in a Bronx apartment – police say he stole nearly $40,000 worth of jewelry, including a diamond-studded Rolex.
Footage taken just before 3:30 p.m. Tuesday shows the victim first being forced to raise his hands as a robber pulled a pistol from his camouflage jacket and pointed it directly at him.
As the attacker appears to be cocking the gun, the victim removes his own fur-lined, parka-style coat and slowly crawls face-first onto the floor near two rows of movie theater seats.
The crook stole a $10,000 Cuban gold chain and a $27,000 Rolex diamond watch, police said.
Surveillance footage also caught him pulling out a cell phone, and police say a second crook joined him and stole the victim’s cell phone, car keys and about $300 in cash.
The duo fled the building near East 165 Street and Cauldwell Avenue in a black Mercedes sedan, police said.
The victim, who was not injured, may have previously met with one of the attackers and let him into the building, a police source said.
