In late October, a group of six reportedly entered the LensCrafters at 2050 Broadway (corner of 70th Street) and stole over $18,000 worth of product from the store.
About a month later, another complaint was made – this time for a theft amounting to $23,000 worth of glasses. An NYPD representative told ILTUWS that on Tuesday, November 23 at 9:20am, a complaint was made stating that “three males entered the store and began to remove tray[s] containing glasses,” and that when a store employee tried to call 911, “one of the suspects threatened physical harm” (though no weapons were displayed).
Police sources told the New York Post that the suspects “grabbed 32 Prada frames, eight BB, 16 Tory Burch, 21 Versace, six Gucci, one Coach and one BV frame.”
“The suspects fled on foot towards West 70 Street. The suspects are described as three male Blacks in their 20s. There are no arrests and the investigation is ongoing,” states the NYPD.
It is unclear whether any of the suspects from October’s robbery may have been involved in the most recent incident, but no arrests for either incident have been reported as of writing.
