Two men walked into Davidson and Licht Jewelers on Broadway Plaza Tuesday afternoon and, after pepper-spraying employees, made off with several expensive watches.
According to police, two African American men in their 20s, both with thin builds, walked into the store about 2:15 p.m. Tuesday. They were dressed in hoodies and wearing gloves. One man had a sledgehammer, the other pepper spray. According to witnesses, one man pepper-sprayed the employees while the other broke a display case with the sledgehammer and grabbed several Rolex watches. They left the store and got into a newer model black Infiniti SUV FX35 with a silver roof rack and silver alloy rims, driven by a third suspect, police reported. They were gone before police could respond.
There was one customer in the store at the time. No one was injured in the robbery.
Police are asking anyone with any information to call the Walnut Creek police at (925) 943-5844.
