Derrick Williams, who plays basketball for the New York Knicks, says he was robbed by two women that he picked up at a nightclub.

It happened last weekend. Williams met the women at a nightclub in Chelsea. He took them back to his apartment around 5 a.m. The women stayed for about 90 minutes. After they left, Williams realized that more than $600,000 in jewelry was missing.

The missing items included a $145,000 Apple watch, a $25,000 diamond chain bearing the Hennessy logo, and a $35,000 Rolex, according to the New York Daily News.

Police are referring to the women as "persons of interest." The woman may have also stolen a $590,000 watch and $6,000 in cash from a Beverly Hills watch dealer at a Midtown hotel earlier in the month, according to the New York Post.

CBS Sports says that Williams was celebrating Friday night's 107-97 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers with a group of friends at the Up & Down Club when he met the women.
