NYPD is on the lookout for a Bonnie and Clyde duo burglarizing hotel guests in Midtown.

The man in his 40s and the woman in her 50s have committed three burglaries at hotels over the last week.

Investigators said the woman follows the victims back to their rooms. The man then knocks on the door claiming to be a hotel employee who needs to fix an appliance.

The man removes some personal property while inside the room, and then leaves.

A watch was removed from a room at the Sheraton New York Hotel And Towers last Thursday, July 15.

Another watch was taken from a room at the Plaza Hotel on Tuesday.

The next day a handbag containing personal items was removed from the InterContinental New York Barclay Hotel.
