OPA LOCKA (CBSMiami) -- Deputies are asking for the public's help to find a man who robbed a woman of a gold Rolex she was attempting to pawn.

Cameras rolled as the armed robber was seen trying to listen in on a conversation between 46-year old Marette Dorelus and a clerk at a Tamarac pawn shop located at 4985 N. State Road 7.

The woman was discussing the sale of the gold Rolex watch. During the discussion, a man was seen entering the store trying to sell an iPhone and overheard the conversation.

That's when deputies said the same man left the shop and waited for the victim by her car.

Once she returned to her car, the robber, armed with a gun, demanded the woman's Rolex. Once he got it, deputies said he ran away.

Anyone with information is urged to call Broward County Crime Stoppers at (954) 493- TIPS.
