A is the subject of ongoing investigation by Rye Police. According to Rye Police Commissioner William Connors, "City of Rye Detectives are being assisted by detectives from the Westchester County Department of Public Safety and that agency's Identification Unit was called in to process the crime scene."
At about 1:30 p.m. last Wednesday afternoon, a male leaving Woodrow Jewelers on Purchase Street and returned to his vehicle on Locust Avenue near the intersection with Mead Place. A representative at Woodrow Jewelers who did not give his name said the man was not employed by the jewelry store directly, but had visited as a sales representative.
When the salesman opened the trunk of his car to secure two satchels containing jewelry with a wholesale value of approximately $50,000, he was approached from behind by two to three males and pushed to the ground.
The suspects fled in a black SUV with what appeared to be an obscured rear license plate, west on Locust Avenue and south on Theodore Fremd Avenue. The victim sustained injuries to his arm when he was thrown to the ground and was treated at Greenwich Hospital. No further information has been made available at this time; the investigation is being actively pursued.
