A man smashes the windows of a jewelry store with a hammer during an armed robbery in Glendale


The public’s help is needed Wednesday to identify two people involved in an armed robbery at a Glendale jewelry store.

The robbery took place last Friday around 1:10 p.m. at a jewelry store in the 200 block of North Brand Boulevard. According to police, he walked into the store with a box of earrings and asked if the store would be interested in buying them.

He then pulled a hammer out of a black backpack and smashed the glass display. Surveillance video released by Glendale Police shows he reached into the case and pulled out several trays of rings and other jewelry, some of which fell to the ground.

Police said a woman was in the store just before the robbery and was said to be inspecting the store.

The first suspect was described as a black male between 20 and 30, about 6 feet tall, with a slim build. He wore clear latex gloves, light blue jeans ripped at the knees, a black hoodie with a white T-shirt underneath, sneakers, a black mask and a black bucket hat. The second suspect was described as a black woman between the ages of 25 and 30 wearing her hair in a bun. In surveillance footage released by police, she carried a black handbag with a large clasp, wore a black baseball cap and face mask, and wore a chain over a white T-shirt that was tied around her midsection. She also wore frayed black pants and black and white sneakers.

A vehicle scene at the crime scene was a 2018-2020 Audi Q5 without plates.
