Storch, 39, and an unidentified companion were standing at West 46th Street and Eighth Avenue about 7 a.m. when two armed men approached them.

Storch complied when the men ordered him to hand over his jewelry and a briefcase containing the $5,000, according to the NYPD. The robbers got into an SUV and drove off.

Storch, who's in Manhattan for MTV's Video Music Awards on Sunday, filed a police report after the robbery. His representatives did not immediately return requests for comment.

Storch, a Long Island native, rose to fame as a keyboard player for The Roots. He now works as a producer with such musicians as Pink, Dr. Dre and Eminem.
