Jewelry Store Staff Fight Smash-And-Grab Team Of Thieves In Wild Video


A group of jewelry store workers retaliated with punches, kicks and even furniture when thieves attempted to rob their store, surveillance video showed.

Surveillance video shared by princess bride diamonds in Huntington Beach, California, shows a group of hooded people running through the store. In the video, one person smashes a jewelry display case with a hammer while three accomplices fan out through the store, holding backpacks.

But a few seconds later, two employees of a jewelry store – identified by NBC 4 Los Angeles as sister and brother Sarah and Dallas Baca – rush to the scene and start punching and kicking intruders.
