Bellevue police are searching for two robbers that are responsible for a string of necklace thefts.

Two men, who are both thin, African American, and between the ages of 20 to 35, have been described as responsible for the six incidents.

The thefts have primarily targeted women wearing expensive jewelry. They start when the men approach a pedestrian, always a woman. While one of the men distracts the victim, the other quickly snatches her necklace.

Five of the thefts have occurred in Bellevue, and a similar crime occurred in Redmond on September 30.
