NEW YORK-- Police on Wednesday released surveillance video of two women accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of personal items from New York Knicks forward Derrick Williams.

Sources told CBS New York that Williams, 24, met the women while out with his friends at the Up & Down club around 5:20 a.m. Saturday. The women went back to Williams' apartment later that morning, sources say. Williams' roommate was also with them, the sources said.
