Two masked men armed with pistols robbed a City Heights jewelry store Friday, authorities reported.
The thieves entered the business in the 4200 block of University Avenue about 10:45 a.m., according to San Diego police. One of them stood in the middle of the store, pointing his gun at an employee, while the other jumped over a display case and grabbed merchandise, Officer Tony Martinez said.
After looting the shop, the bandits, who were wearing black masks, black sweat shirts and gloves, fled to the east on Polk Avenue in a silver late- model Honda or Toyota, the officer said.
