Armed robbers steal $72k in jewelry outside diamond district store. It was sad news that three customers in the Diamond District were robbed of $72,000 worth of jewelry by two thieves with guns. One of the victims told The Post on Tuesday how scary the robbery was.

Said Marie Rivera, who was robbed:

It was quick, I think they already knew we were going to come out. When we opened the door, they came up to us right away.

Around 7:50 p.m., the victims were walking out of Avis Diamond, which is at 71 W. 47th St. near Fifth Avenue. Rivera and the police said that on Monday, two men ran up to the three people, pulled out guns, and told them to give them their stuff.

According to the Breit Bart, the robbery occurred at around 8:00 p.m. outside the Avis Jewelry store located at 71 West 47 Street in the Diamond District in midtown Manhattan.

They opened the door and took my purse. I had two necklaces in my purse, which were diamond necklaces. They got a necklace from my friend as well, which also had diamonds.

- Rivera

She said that she had just gotten her necklaces back after they had been cleaned and that her friend had gotten back a watch that had been fixed before they were robbed.

Surveillance footage shows that the thieves left the store with at least one big bag and jumped into a white Jeep SUV outside. They then drove off quickly.

No arrests have been made.

A ticked-off Diamond District jeweler told The Post on Tuesday.

This is the third [local] robbery in the past two weeks that I know of. This is the worst crime that has been on 47th Street in the past 20 years. Forty-seventh Street used to be one of the safest streets. Now all the dealers are talking about how we’ve become targets.

Disappointed Over Not Receiving Assistance From Police Officers

"We’re not getting enough help from police," he said. "A lot of these guys wait for shoppers to go into offices or stores and get them at their cars or follow them all the way home."

"The mayor has to do something about it," he said. "What are we paying taxes for? To get robbed? To get f—ed twice?"

Police couldn't confirm right away that the jeweler was telling the truth about recent thefts in the area.

In April, a thief broke into another store in the Diamond District and stole nearly $500,000 worth of diamond rings. Police said that the store owner at the Diamond Center of USA had gone into the back room before the woman stole 112 of the expensive jewels.

In August 2019, two armed thieves broke into Avianne & Co. Jewelers and stole $4 million worth of jewelry. This was one of the biggest jewelry thefts in New York City. Two of the suspects were later caught after they jumped into a waiting car and ran away.

Pedro Davila, who is 30, was caught a few months later in Florida. Jaysean Sutton, who is also 42, was caught and pleaded guilty in federal court in January. He is still waiting to be sentenced.
