A group of men, some in masks and disguises, held up a jewelry store in Queens on Halloween, getting away with necklaces, rings and rope chains, police say.

The four robbers walked into Virani Jewelers at 74-15 37th Ave. in Jackson Heights just after 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 31, according to police. One of the men, who was wearing a Halloween mask, threatened a worker with a gun and forced her to open a safe in the back office. 

The others took jewelry from the display case, and the four men then fled with an undetermined amount of jewelry, police say.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS or at nypdcrimestoppers.com.
