Police have released surveillance video of two Manhattan jewelry store robberies, saying they've established a pattern linking the two incidents.

The first armed robbery happened Aug. 24 at about 1:45 p.m. Three men walked into the Crown Jewelers International store at 60 West 8th St. in Greenwich Village, one taking out a gun and pistol-whipping the store owner while another used a hammer to smash several display cases, police said.

The three men took assorted jewelry from the cases and fled westbound on West 8th Street in a black Chevrolet Suburban, according to police.

Two of the men were wearing brightly colored safety vests, police said.

The second robbery happened Aug. 25 at about 11 a.m. at Kenjo Jewelers at 40 W. 57th Street in Midtown. Two men walked into the store, one with a gun and the other with a rubber mallet, according to police. The man with the rubber mallet tried to break open a case with it but was unsuccessful, and ordered the clerk to open the case.

The clerk complied, and the suspects fled, police said.

Anyone with information on the robberies is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
