Police are on the lookout for two women who allegedly stole watches from unsuspecting men who became "dizzy and unconscious" after meeting them at bars and accompanying them to hotel rooms.
The first incident occurred on August 11th, sometime between 1:15 a.m. and 6 a.m. According to the NYPD, a 38-year-old man met one of the suspects at the Top of the Standard bar in the Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking District before they headed to his room at the Dream Hotel on West 16th Street. Investigators say, "Once inside the room, the victim became dizzy and lost consciousness." After that, the woman allegedly took his $20,000 Audemars Piguet watch and fled the room.
Then on August 13th, a similar robbery occurred around 1:49 a.m., when a 37-year-old man was relieved of his watch at the Sofitel on West 44th Street. The victim met a female suspect at STK on Little West 12th Street and, after they got to his hotel room, police say, "the victim became dizzy and lost consciousness." When he regained consciousness, his $18,000 Rolex watch was gone.
On August 16th, around 11:30 p.m. police say a woman stole two watches, a bag and a pen from a 56-year-old man's hotel room, also at the Sofitel Hotel. The victim apparently met the female suspect at Gaby, the hotel's restaurant, before taking her to his room where he "became dizzy and lost consciousness." According to the Post, the items were "a $30,000 Breguet watch, $8,000 Omega watch, a Louis Vuitton bag and Mont Blanc pen."
The suspects are wanted for grand larceny. The first suspect is described as being in her 30s, 5'5", brunette—last seen wearing a pink top and light blue jeans—while the second suspect is described as being in her 30s, 5'5" and 115 pounds, with blond hair and pink highlights, who was last seen wearing was a black top and black pants.
