New York City police are asking for the public’s help Wednesday in tracking down two men accused of stealing a $10,000 Rolex watch at knifepoint from an individual inside a Manhattan café

The brazen crime unfolded around 10:30 p.m. June 11 at the Toast Café in Manhattan’s bustling Herald Square neighborhood, according to the NYPD. 

Investigators said the 27-year-old victim and one of the unidentified suspects entered the restaurant and headed to the "upstairs dining area of the location where unknown Individual #2, who was seated at a table, got up and approached the two of them. 

"The two individuals, acting in concert, proceeded to place a knife to the victim's back and forcibly removed a Rolex watch from his wrist," the NYPD said in a statement to Fox News Digital. "The two individuals then fled the location on foot heading northbound on 6 Avenue." 

Police say the victim was not injured and that the value of the watch is around $10,000.
