A 26-year-old man was violently robbed of a pricey watch by two masked bandits of inside a Long Island City parking garage last week.
The man was approached by the men and struck in the back of the head with an unknown object last Thursday at 10:15 p.m. in a parking garage near 48th Avenue and 5th Street, police said.
They demanded his $125,000 watch, grabbed it and sped off in a vehicle and the victim received medical attention at the scene, according to the police.
The 26-year-old, who gave only his first name David, told New York 4 that he believed he was targeted and followed for his expensive Audemars Piguet watch.
