An off-duty New York officer was approached by two thieves on a motorcycle and robbed of a $10,000 necklace and his mobile phone before the robbers sped off.

According to the New York Post, the 40-year-old officer was walking home early Sunday morning when the passenger on the motorcycle hopped off, brandished a firearm, and snatched the officer's belongings.

The pair then fled the scene and remain at large.
