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.
