While alone, the suspect snatched three of the jewelry-maker Khachwajian's masterpieces -- two braclets and a ring -- from the counter and left the shop.The jewelers have a second boutique inside the Pheonicia, but the suspect targeted the larger boutique located within a shopping arcade accessible from outside the hotel.
