New York police are searching for two women who they suspect robbed an NBA player of thousands of dollars worth of jewelry.

NYPD reported the suspects stole $750,000 worth of jewelry from New York Knicks player Derrick Williams.

Police said Williams met the women at a New York City club last weekend and took them back to his home. After an hour and a half, the women left. 

Williams later noticed all his jewelry was gone, police said, including a $50,000 Rolex watch and three diamond rings. 

NYPD said they are seeing this type of crime more often. 

Police have not been able to identify the women. They are being called 'persons of interest.'
