Two jewelry store robberies in two days
GREENPOINT (WABC) -- There have been two jewelry store robberies in Greenpoint, Brooklyn in two days.
One owner is in the hospital, another is fuming, and police are on the hunt for the suspects.
On a soggy Tuesday night in Brooklyn, the two jewelry stores were buttoned up tight.
But, it's during the day while it's open for business when they are most vulnerable.
Yura Musheve showed Eyewitness News the surveillance video.
He believes two men and one woman were in it together.
2:30 Tuesday afternoon while one man looked at some pieces of jewelry, the other two suspects distracted the owner, and that's how the first left with the goods in hand.
Monday's robbery just around the corner at Studio Jewelry proved far more violent.
The owner didn't have protective glass and was shot in the chest.
The store's video shows two men storming in and the first immediately pulls out his gun and chases the owner to the back.
The second then left his lookout position and started shoveling the valuables into his duffle bag.
Both robbers are described as middle-aged dark-skinned men.
Investigators released surveillance video of the two suspects on Tuesday (CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO).
The owner's son was keeping an eye on the shop and on his father who is recovering.
The two incidents do not appear to be related.
So far, there are no arrests in either incident.
