Watsonville police are searching for a man who robbed a jewelry store over the weekend and threatened an employee with a hypodermic needle. On Saturday officers responded to reports of a robbery at Ideal Jewelry in the 1400 block of Freedom Boulevard, according to Watsonville police.

A lone suspect — who was later identified as 43-year-old Eric Sanchez — had entered the business armed with a knife and a hypodermic needle, police said. Sanchez allegedly told a store employee that he had communicable diseases, police said. He stole several items of jewelry and fled the area on a bicycle, police said. No one was injured. Police reviewed video surveillance and identified Sanchez as the prime suspect. Investigators searched Sanchez’ home and found property stolen from the store, police said.
