Pair steals pricey bags from NYC Christian Louboutin store
New video captures the moment armed thieves threatened a Christian Louboutin worker at knifepoint and swiped six pricey bags from the West Village store this week.
The two men entered the designer store at Horatio and Greenwich streets around 1:15 p.m. Tuesday, cops said.
One of the men started snatching bags off the display shelves, while the other wandered to the back, according to the clip, released by police early Thursday.
He is shown quickly flashing a knife, with cops saying he threatened a worker at the ritzy shop.
He then returned to the front of the store and joined his accomplice as they snatched more bags.
The pair left the shop with six bags, worth a total of $10,420, cops said. No one was hurt.
One of the suspects fled east on Horatio Street, and the other headed west on the same block, police said.
The duo is still on the lam.
The suspect with the knife is described as about 35 to 45 years old and was last seen wearing blue jeans, a blue baseball hat, a black jacket and black boots.
The other man appeared to be around 20 to 30 years old and was last seen wearing black pants, a black hooded jacket and black sneakers.
