Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - A thief in New York targeted a high-end jeweler that specializes in bedazzling the stars.

The robber stole several expensive pieces from the showroom, including a few special creations from a safe. In addition to robbing the store, the thief also beat the store manager, choking her and tying her up before stealing her purse and credit cards.

The store has designed pieces for celebrities such as Beyoncé and Selena Gomez.
