The NYPD is trying to identify these two suspects wanted for questioning in connection with the theft of Derrick Williams’ jewlery.
Police are hoping to chat with two women who partied with Knicks forward Derrick Williams right before more than $ 600,000 in jewelry disappeared from his apartment Saturday morning.
On Wednesday, cops released video of the two women, taken from a surveillance camera at Up&Down on West 14th St., a nightclub in Chelsea.
According to police, the women entered Williams’ apartment at about 5:20 a.m. Saturday. They stayed for about 90 minutes, and after they left, Williams realized about $ 617,000 in pricey trinkets had gone missing.
Police are referring to the two women as “persons of interest” in the theft.
The swag included a $ 145,000 watch, a diamond chain bearing the Hennessy logo worth $ 25,000 and a $ 35,000 Rolex, police sources said.
Up&Down is the same nightclub where authorities said rapper Azealia Banks bit the breast of a security guard after a dispute about a private party on Dec. 16.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
