Men Tie Up One Employee, Hold Another At Gunpoint In Robbery At Chicago Lawn Jewelry Store

CHICAGO (CBS) -- Police Wednesday evening were searching for three men who tied up one employee while holding another at gunpoint at a Chicago Lawn neighborhood jewelry store.

Around 5:55 p.m., a 69-year-old woman who worked at the store, in the 2400 block of West 63rd Street, through the rear, police said.

The three men tied the woman's hands and took miscellaneous property from her, police said.

The suspects then came up to a 59-year-old man and held him at gunpoint, trying to get a keycode from him so they could take items from inside the jewelry store, police said.

It was not clear whether they got the keycode. Police said the suspects took money, but no merchandise that they are aware of.

The suspects ran off. No one was in custody as of Wednesday night.
