Fake Weapon, Real Merchandise

Written by Alan Krawitz on . Posted in Crime Watch Our Town Downtown, Our Town Downtown.


A clerk at a Wooster Street clothing store told police that two black men were in the store on Tuesday, April 2 and pretended to shop when one of the men distracted another sales clerk while the other man proceeded to take seven handbags from a display shelf. The clerk also said that as the men were leaving the store with the unpaid merchandise, one man displayed a dark object, which looked like a weapon. The suspects fled on foot southbound on Wooster Street, possibly using a dark, four-door sedan for their escape. The bags the men took, all Alexander Wang Rocco bags, were valued at $5,965. Police said there was no video surveillance. Police are looking for the two men, described as wearing blue jeans, multi-colored jackets and sneakers.
