A pair of thieves swiped a $41,000 Audemars Piguet watch off a victim in Upper Manhattan — before pistol-whipping and shooting at him, police and sources said Tuesday.
The 28-year-old victim was walking out of a beauty salon on West 162 Street near Broadway when he was ambushed by two men with guns just before 5:45 p.m. Monday, police said.
The armed robbers grabbed the man’s $5,000 chain and his luxury timepiece, valued at $41,000, according to sources.
The robbers then pistol-whipped the man when he refused to hand over his wallet and fled in a black Honda Accord, police said.
As they drove off, one of the men fired as many as three shots at the victim, cops said.
The victim was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University hospital with head injuries, according to cops.
No arrests have been made.
