JSA Offering Reward in Violent Brooklyn Jewelry Store Robbery
The two suspects beat the 79-year-old store owner before taking off with more than $100,000 in jewelry, police said.
According to the New York Police Department, the robbery occurred Dec. 30 at about 5:30 p.m. at Roxy Jewelry, located in the Prospect Lefferts Garden neighborhood of Brooklyn.
JSA said the store’s 79-year-old owner was closing up for the night when two suspects (pictured in the NYPD tweet below) stormed in and brutally beat him while robbing the store.
On the surveillance video, one of the suspects can be heard saying, “You gotta take all the rings,” while the other commented that their pockets were stuffed.
The jeweler needed to be placed in intensive care with a brain bleed. No update on his condition was available as of Monday morning.
The NYPD places the value of the jewelry stolen at over $100,000.
