Smash and Grab Robbery in New York, NY – May 12, 2015.
Just after 1pm in midtown Manhattan three men, dressed in suits and fedoras entered a retail jewelry store. Within seconds hammers smashed through showcases as two of the men grabbed for jewels. The third man fired off two rounds from a handgun before they made off with high-end watches. A foot pursuit by a retired police officer who works at the store resulted in the apprehension of a male, 19, and the retrieval of a few stolen items.
The other suspects are still at large.
