Bandits rob Chinatown jewelry store

Two bandits robbed a Chinatown jewelry store at gunpoint on Thursday, according to police.

Two men, one described as in his 20s and the other his 30s, entered the business in the 800 block of Grant Avenue just before 5 p.m. One brandished a gun and the other held a bag, cops said.

The crook with the bag reached behind the counter and grabbed the jewelry, police said. The two fled with the loot.

A 28-year-old employee at the store was not harmed. No arrests have been made.
