Violent Jewelry Robbery in Valley Village

Posted: Updated:

Surveillance video is being reviewed from a violent jewelry store robbery on Halloween in Valley Village.

The robbery of Valley Discount Jewelers went down in broad daylight when a woman held the door open for three men who dashed in and smashed glass showcases with hammers, scooping up expensive jewelry and exiting the store within minutes.

The owners say that the woman, apparently a Latina in her 20's, did not appear to be suspicious when the buzzed her in the door.

The three hooded men apparently targeted the most expensive jewelry case and appeared to know what they were looking for.

A customer sustained a broken shoulder when she was shoved to the ground by one of the robbers.

The owner and his mother were pepper sprayed when they tried to run to the back to escape.

Police still have no suspects in the crime at this time.
