NYPD seeking luxury watch robbers


Police are searching for three male robbers who allegedly robbed a 21-year-old man last month in Kingsbridge.

The victim reported to police that on Jan. 20 at around 1:15 p.m., he was meeting with an unidentified male to sell his luxury watches at West 238 Street and Putnam Avenue West. However, two additional males approached pointing a firearm, police said.

One of the two struck the victim in the face with the firearm. The group then forcibly removed the two watches, valued at $6,000, and fled in a gray Nissan Altima. According to police, they were traveling westbound on West 238 Street.

Police say the 21-year-old victim sustained minor injuries but refused medical attention.

The three sought after individuals are described as having medium complexions. One suspect on surveillance footage was shown with an orange hoodie, red and white hat, facial hair, a black jacket, a blue backpack, tattered jeans and white sneakers.

Anyone with information in regard to the robbery pattern is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1 (800) 577-8477 or for Spanish, (888) 577-4782. The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/ or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
