MANHATTAN — Police are looking for a woman they say snatched two pricey timepieces from a man's apartment on the Upper West Side.

On Sept. 16, at about 3 a.m., the victim, 25, realized that his two watches — estimated worth at $10,000 and $300 — were stolen from his apartment around Columbus Avenue and West 97th Street, police said.
