A man in a burqa-like garment stole $800,000 in jewelry and watches from a Piaget store in the Hudson Yards neighborhood of Manhattan.

The theft took place just before 4 p.m. Sunday, the New York Post reports.

Police say the man asked to see a necklace. As the employee showed him the piece, he realized the customer was holding a watch.

Upon being questioned about the timepiece, the suspicious man sprayed toward the employee with a spray bottle.

The thief then made off with the necklace and two watches. The total value of the merchandise was $800,600, the Post reports.

Police have had trouble identifying the culprit “because the head covering — typically worn by women in some Muslim cultures — concealed most of the man’s face,” according to the Post.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
