A 67-year-old man was robbed of nearly $1.2 million in jewelry in the Borough Park area of Brooklyn.

The man, a jewelry dealer, was in a car near Molly’s Jewelers when two men approached, the Daily Mail reports.

Neighborhood watch group Boro Park Shomrim released security footage if the incident. See the group’s tweet below.

The Daily Mail reports that the culprits were seen to reach inside the automobile “before ripping open the driver side door and threatening the elderly jewelry dealer with a gun, forcing him to open his trunk.”

They made off with two bags of jewelry. They ran away, then fled in a black Ford Taurus, police said.

It’s unknown whether the victim worked at Molly’s Jewelers. He told authorities the stolen jewelry was the property of a Manhattan store.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
