Police are searching for two thieves who used a hammer to bash open a Forest Hills store’s window in an attempt to steal merchandise, the manager of Lorilil Jewelers said.
The store’s manager said two men with a large hammer smashed the store’s window in an attempt to snatch watches from its Rolex case around 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 24.
“It was very brazen – right in the middle of the day,” the manager said.
The window was in the process of being replaced on Monday and no suspects had yet been arrested.
If anyone has any information on the incident, contact the 112th Precinct at 718-520-9311.
Lorilil Jewelers is located at 107-34 71st Ave. in Forest Hills.
