Armed robber steals dear necklace at gunpoint, flees on moped in Manhattan


A robber snatched a person’s dear necklace at gunpoint in Manhattan final week earlier than taking off on a moped, disturbing new video reveals. 

The 22-year-old sufferer was strolling on West thirty third Street close to tenth Avenue in Hudson Yards round 10 p.m. Thursday when two strangers approached him on a moped, driving on the sidewalk, authorities mentioned.

The rear passenger hopped off the moped and approached the sufferer with a gun in hand, the video launched early Monday reveals. 

The suspect is seen yanking on the $2,500 chain across the man’s neck earlier than grabbing it and getting again on his trip. The duo then rode off.

The incident comes months after a pair of alleged thieves had been nabbed in an in depth theft spree that netted them greater than $2 million in luxurious watches from manufacturers like Rolex, Richard Mille, Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe. 

And in August, cops mentioned they had been searching for two armed thieves who stole dear jewels — price $4 million in whole — from individuals who had simply left Manhattan hotspots.
