Rolex worth $34K stolen from north-end Starbucks: police
Investigators say suspect hit man over the head and ran off with the expensive timepiece
A man who brought his Rolex watch to Starbucks to sell got more than a Venti wad of cash, when a man approached, hit him and made off with the pricey timepiece, according to police.
On Tuesday, police said, a 44-year-old man brought the $34,000 watch to the Starbucks at Bathurst Street and Finch Avenue.
Not long after he arrived, another man approached, struck him on the head and grabbed a bag that held the watch.
The suspect then fled the café.
Police have released an image taken from security camera footage of their suspect. He is described as a white male in his 20s, standing five-feet-ten inches with a heavy build. He has facial hair, and was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 32 Division at 416-808-3200 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS.
