BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, Brooklyn — Three individuals entered a Brooklyn jewelry store Dec. 1 and made off with about $14,000 worth of merchandise, officials said Friday.
At about 1:20 p.m., three men entered the store on Rockaway Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Two of the men displayed firearms and forced a 22-year-old man into the store’s basement while the third kept watch, officials said.
Police said the suspects then forced two more victims — a 21-year-old man and a 34-year-old man — to lay down on the floor, beating them with their firearms. After the assaults, police said the suspects stole cash, electronics, jewelry and other merchandise before fleeing in a white Mercedes Benz sedan.
There were no reports of injuries, police said.
The three suspects are described as men between 18 and 27 years old.
