Employees at a Breaux Bridge Jewelry store find themselves in the center of armed robbery. They say two men wearing ski masks, pulled a gun and demanded money.
It happened around 9:30 Friday morning at Robert's Jewlery Store.
One employee said, "they looked up and I saw the masks on their face and one of them grabbed her and shoved her into the jewelry store and I turned around and ran into the flower shop area to call 911."
None of the employees wanted to show their face on camera, but tell KATC one of the suspects pulled out a gun and demanded money.
"He shoved her behind the counter and told her open the door and started grabbing money," the employee said.
The duo grabbed a few hundred dollars but didn't take any merchandise and then took off in a vehicle they parked right out front. The employees said they are more shaken up than anything.
