During a busy Friday, four masked men in blue painter’s overalls proceeded from a Cadillac Sedan into the Americana Mall in Manhasset, New York. They entered a jewelry store and took out their guns. In addition to their guns, they took out sledge hammers. This all took place at about 2:00 pm in the London Jewelry Store located in Manhasset, New York. The men told the employees and customers to lie on the ground. They then raised their sledge hammers and broke the glass cases. They emptied the cases of watches and then ran off to a waiting black Cadillac Escalade. The men and women in the store were shocked by these events.
