A player for the New York Knicks was allegedly ripped off by two young women he met at a nightclub and then brought home.

Derrick Williams, 24, of La Mirada woke up to find that some of his possessions worth hundreds of thousands of dollars were missing.

Police believe this isn't the first robbery the women have committed, and that they may have worked in other clubs, taking other men home and robbing them.

Surveillance video shows the women at the Up and Down Club in the Meatpacking District at about 5:20 a.m. on Dec. 19.

Williams brought the women home from the nightclub to his apartment on W. 14th Street and later that day noticed that $617,000 in jewelry and other valuables was missing.

There wasn't a lot of sympathy for Williams from other residents in the area.

The Knicks forward earns around $5 million a year, but many there believed he showed poor judgment in this incident.

Anyone with information in this case was asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
