Diner Shot During Stickup at High-End NYC Restaurant

(Associated Press) A diner at a high-end Manhattan restaurant was shot in the leg during a stickup in the eatery’s outdoor seating area, police said.

The 28-year-old victim and his date were at Philippe on East 60th Street at 10 p.m. Wednesday when a pair of armed robbers approached them and diners at another table and demanded their jewelry, police said.

A man at another table surrendered his watch, but the 28-year-old tried to wrestle the gun away from one of the robbers and was shot in the leg, police said.

The gunmen fled in an SUV driven by a third man, police said. The shooting victim was treated at a hospital and was expected to survive.

The victim’s date, who did not give her name, told the Daily News that she was “in shock.”

Police have made no arrests.


(WABC) The mask-wearing suspects emerged from a dark-colored SUV and descended on two men who were dining at different tables.

Exclusive video obtained by Eyewitness News shows the incident unfold.

One suspect stole a 31-year-old man’s Rolex Stainless Steel Submariner.

The other suspect approached a 28-year-old man on a date at a separate table to rob him.

That victim resisted and struggled with the suspect, grabbing his gun, which suddenly went off.
