ROBBERY – The NYPD is asking the public’s assistance identifying the suspects wanted for a robbery.
At 6:35 p.m. on Oct. 31, the suspects walked into Virani Jewelers, 74-15 37th Ave., Jackson Heights, and announced a robbery. One of the suspects, wearing a Halloween mask and armed with a gun, forced the employee at the location into the back office and had her open the safe while the two other suspects removed jewelry from the display case. A fourth suspect watched the front door. The suspects then fled the location with an undetermined amount of jewelry, including necklaces, rings and rope chains.
All the suspects were described as male Hispanics, one of them dark-skinned.
