Union Square luxury retailer robbed of $10,000

A group of robbers Tuesday evening targeted a high-end retail store in Union Square, taking more than $10,000 in merchandise, police said.

Several men and women walked into the Salvatore Ferragamo store on Post Street near Grant Avenue, which sells pricey Italian handbags, shoes and bags. The thieves began to leave the store without paying for merchandise around 6:30 p.m., police said.

When an employee at the store tried to stop them, the suspects “used force” to escape with the stolen goods, police said.

No detailed suspect descriptions have been released.
