Pro boxer Jermall Charlo had a bag with contents worth over $150,000 stolen on Saturday night at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in Manhattan. The NYPD is seeking five female suspects, who were caught on surveillance video leaving with the athlete’s bag containing cash and jewelry.
When partying at rapper Jay-Z’s Manhattan club on Saturday night, professional boxer Jermall Charlo was allegedly robbed of his bag, the contents of which are said to be worth over $150,000. Police are seeking five women caught on video leaving the club with the bag. See the surveillance video below.
Middleweight contender Charlo was in Brooklyn to catch Premier Boxing Champions: Deontay Wilder vs. Luiz Ortiz on Saturday, March 3. After the match, he went with friends to Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in the Flatiron District.
At around 3 a.m., Charlo is said to have gotten into an argument that turned into a physical confrontation. At this point, one of Charlo’s friends handed the bag to a woman and walked away, presumably to break up or assist in the fight.
After the chaos cleared, Charlo discovered that his bag was gone.
It was a Luis Vuitton bag, containing $40,000 in cash and about $115,000 worth of jewelry.
The club’s surveillance camera captured footage of five women leaving 40/40 with Charlo’s bag.
Didier Morais, spokesman for 40/40 Club, said that, “The bag in question was handed to one of the girls with the Charlo party by a friend of the party host and she walked out of the club with it.”
Police are asking anyone who recognizes any of the women in the video or who has any other information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
Twenty-seven-year-old Charlo is scheduled for an Interim WBC Middleweight World Championship match with middleweight contender Hugo Centeno Jr. The match is set for April 21, 2018. The fight had been slated for March 3, but was rescheduled due to Centeno suffering from a rib injury.
Jermall Charlo, who is from Texas, held the IBF light middleweight title between 2015 and 2017. His twin brother Jermell Charlo is also a pro boxer
