On Tuesday, police said a duo of thieves were stealing jewelry from their victims in armed robberies in the Bronx and Manhattan.
Earlier this month, the men stabbed three times, stealing more than $23,000 in jewelry and cash.
In the first incident, a man approached two women, aged 27 and 32, outside a nail salon in the Great Hall off E. 183rd Street in Fordham Heights around 5:20 am on March 3, police said.
The burglar pulled out a gun and removed $8,000 worth of necklaces right from their necks, scratching and bruising the elderly woman.
According to police, he left in a dark gray BMW X5.
The next morning, the man drove the same BMW to the Dyckman Street station in Inwood and entered the station around 7:25 a.m., police said.
At station number 1, he aimed at a 40-year-old man and drew a gun before hitting the victim in the head with it.
Again, the thief took the man’s jewelry, as well as a wallet with credit cards and $1,200 in cash.
According to the police, he ran away, jumped back into his car and drove away.
As a result of the robbery, the victim received minor bruises and scratches.
About three hours later, back in the Bronx, the two men entered a barbershop at the corner of E. 169th Street and Morris Avenue in Claremont, police said.
At least one of the men flashed a gun and forcibly removed $14,000 worth of jewelry from the 50-year-old man’s neck and wrist.
They both drove off in the same BMW that was used in the other robberies.
As a result of the attack, the victim’s forehead was cut.
Police are still looking for the men, who they believe are between 20 and 20 years old.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
