Two masked men carried out a smash-and-grab robbery Tuesday afternoon at the Kevin Jewelers store in the Valley Plaza Mall.

An officer said the men broke the store's window, grabbed jewelry and ran off. A witness said the men had a large hammer.

A worker at the nearby Wetzel's Pretzels said she thought the breaking of the glass was a gunshot at first. That worker also described the men's masks as the type hospital workers wear over their mouths.

There were no reported injuries.

Only generic suspect descriptions were immediately available.
