Police are hoping surveillance video will lead them to a man they say robbed a jewelry store in Manhattan.

The robbery occurred Friday at Margo Manhattan jewelry store on Madison Avenue on the Upper East Side.

Police say the man grabbed an employee by the neck, forced her to a back room and tied her up.

Then police say he took a key from her and stole more than $50,000 in jewelry.

The suspect was last seen wearing a beaded silver chain, black shirt, jeans and a Brooklyn Nets hat.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
